Deep snow

8th 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.

A blanket of new snow arrived during the night.  Milder temperatures led to heavy snow conditions with deep slush at glen level.  Poor visibility with little or no definition above 700 metres.

At 600 metres.

Looking across to the Allt Burn at 500m.


A hare burrow gave some definition
