A firm snowpack
17th January 2021
The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions inÂ Local AuthorityÂ areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring toÂ Scottish Government guidanceÂ and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information forÂ hillwalkers and climbersÂ andÂ snowsports on ski and board.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
The extensive snowpack is generally firm if traveling by ski. Â For those on foot its a breakable crust which gives support at higher levels. Â Although the freezing level was around 700 metres it felt cold in the strong Westerly winds.
