A black and white day.
10th April 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.
Conditions were very similar to yesterday only the winds were lighter. Â Scattered snow showers through the afternoon and cold temperatures; lows of minus 7C over the summits. Â Softer accumulations of snow have filled in lee areas and hollows. Â Instabilities persist within the deeper deposits of localised windslab. Â These are mostly lingering around the tops of gullies and coire rims and steep convexities, on NE, E to S aspects. Â Small avalanches could be triggered at the top of some steep slopes with potential to be carried down the steep icy slopes below.
