Blizzard condtions

24th January 2008

Heavy snow showers at all levels affected the highlands today.
Our pit was dug in Ciste Mhearad (a popular site for us). We had white-out conditions at times with the occasional clear spell. There are a lot of deep drifts, cornices are becoming very unstable and some avalanche debris was noted that had naturally released from a scarp slope.
A short clear spell gave us views out toward Bynack More.
