Today was windier than it has been recently, and this is set to continue through the week. The snowpack had refrozen overnight and softened through the day in most locations.

Looking into Coire an Lochain. Only patchy snow cover remains below 900m

The Great Slab becoming visible in Coire an Lochain. Cornices still overhang the coire rim.

Many of the reindeer herd only have 1 or no antlers now, but this fellow still has both.
