A blanket of snow
24th February 2017
Soft snow on all aspects with deep drifts in places, ski or snowshoe are a helpful way to travel but the descents are a little interesting with plenty of rocks just below the surface. Â In steep terrain many aspects hold unstable snow. Â All change again over the next 24 hours with the arrival of strong winds and mild temperatures.

Certainly, in the short bursts of working among the hollows and ridges of Cairngorm, thus year has been one of the hardest for me. I usually pick the ‘strong winds’ day and then wallow in calf (mine not the bovine one) deep mush with occasional spots of “crikey, that’s slidy” ( well, harsher and more colourful words to give the same meaning). Thanks for you work, gals and guys out there!
