Another calm day with some good visibility for most of the day.

Firm/icy underfoot conditions overlooking the Eastern aspect of Cnap Coire na Spreidhe.  You could be thinking that the lighter snow handrailing the edge was fresh windslab, but it was actually very firm.

Ciste Mhearad.  Usually a ‘hive’ of activity with winter skills groups, today we were the first visitors.  Snow lies here until well into late summer and there is probably at least 5m depth of snow in the bank behind the forecaster.
