Lots of deep snow

31st December 2009

New deep accumulations in Corrie an t Sneachda

There are deep snow amounts at all altitudes which make for very difficult trail breaking.
The snowpack is very weak on most aspects with heavy and hard windslab overlying sugary faceted layers.
In the cold temperatures this weakness will remain for some time
