Whiteout conditions

2nd January 2017

Another ‘full ‘winters day on the Cairngorm tops, poor visibility and challenging navigation in whiteout conditions and blizzards . A good start re snow conditions with reasonably good cover, hopefully not too much will disappear in the warm conditions on tuesday .

Met up with some of the Cairngorm mountain rescue team as they descended of the plateau after searching for a couple who were missing overnight and who survived after an emergency bivouac on the southern slopes of Cairngorm.
