Cooler temperatures

20th 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.

Summit temperatures of minus 2C with occasional snow showers.  After recent thaw conditions, the snowpack has developed a widespread crust.  A thin icy glaze has developed on paths and boulder fields above 900 metres making for tricky underfoot conditions in these areas!
