Clear and Sunny
27th February 2021
The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
Clear conditions, extensive snow cover remains above 900m. The snow is firm and icy, only softening during the afternoon on Southerly aspects.
The view South from the top of Fiachaill a Coire Chais, looking towards Ben MacDhui. Good snow cover, firm and icy in places. Only softening on Southerly aspects during the afternoon.
Looking across to Hell’s Lum which is South East facing. Note avalanche debris to the left of Hells Lum itself, probably triggered by cornice collapse. Also numerous smaller wet snow avalanches below the main crag.
Looking up towards the Fiachaill a Coire Chais. Note the glazed crust on the surface of the snowpack.
