Thick Cloud- Deep Snow

24th December 2009

Looking onto Mess of Potage in Coire an t Sneachda.

A day of very poor visibility and deep snow – difficult trail breaking – it took a party 3hrs to get to the base of the crag in Coire an T Sneachda from the car park !
The snowpack feels very spooky especially with the weak layers 40 cm down on the old surface hoar layer on what seems like all aspects.
