Winter Saturday on Cairngorm

20th April 2013

Summit temperatures on Cairngorm were still below freezing on Saturday morning and it was windy.   Failures were identified in the surface windslab during field observations.  
In exposed locations snow was being transported and redistributed in the strong South-West winds.

Cracking underfoot below. Strong winds and significant snow forecast for Saturday evening and into Sunday. Still fantastic ski touring conditions. Skiable snow right to Cairngorm Car Park.

Possibly milder during the coming week and the prospect of more snow next weekend!
