The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information for hillwalkers and climbers and snowsports on ski and board.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
Today was another warmer day with the snowpack continuing to thaw and consolidate at all levels. The snowpack should further consolidate and start to refreeze at higher elevations, as the freezing level drops tomorrow.

Looking into the Ciste gully where snow cover remains good above 600 metres.

Looking into the Cas side of the ski area where snow cover is also good.
