Windy on the tops with Blizzards

24th February 2020

Good snow cover at lower elevations but wind scoured in many places especially on the Cairngorm plateau.  Deep snow  in wind sheltered areas such as coire floors and meadows with hard trail breaking on foot. The wind shift to South-Easterlies has meant that many snowfields of the last few days are now being eroded of snow with sastrugi features remaining.

 

 

 

 

Icy conditions in well scoured places.
