Breakable crust

17th December 2020


The Scottish Avalanche Information Service would recommend that those wishing to enjoy the winter mountains refer to Mountaineering Scotland and Scottish Government advice regarding Covid-19 and outdoor activities.
Good snow cover above 800 metres.  A widespread breakable crust has developed at all levels, this becomes firmer above 1000 metres.  Clear skies with strong, gusting gale force South-Westerly winds.
