Avalanche day

2nd February 2013

Drifting on Beinn Mheadhoin

Fiacaill Buttress
Although the snow distribution looks fairly lean on this Easterly aspect in Sneachda there were two avalanche incidents both within a short space of time today with crown wall of up to and over one foot in height.   People were carried down on both occasions through particularly unpleasant terrain, but thankfully everyone survived to tell the tale.  Thanks fo Glenmore Lodge instructor “Kevin” for the photo’s.
