Mild and wet

21st February 2012

If you are standing at the Cas car park staring at the Cairngorms thinking they look a little snowless and bleak at the moment, don’t loose heart… With just a bit more walking you will still find some large snowfields on East and South facing slopes, well worth the effort. At the moment some deep, soft accumulations of windslab are going through a consolidation period, however the mild wet weather that we are having is still causing some instabilities, especially on steeper slopes.
