Today was cold and overcast first thing becoming sunny later on. The snowpack remained firm and stable with a thin covering of soft snow in most locations. Slightly deeper deposits of soft snow on East to South aspects became heavier as they became exposed to the sun during the day. Another sunny day in prospect for tomorrow with the freezing level rising to around 1200 metres during the day.
A view to Ben Macdui showing the cover on the Cairngorm plateau which remains generally good. Cairn Toul, Angels Peak and Breariach are all visible in the background.
A view to Ben Mheadhoin which has less snow cover, the foreground shows the snow cover on the South side of Cairngorm.
Looking across the East side of Cairngorm, which still holds good cover high up, to Beinn Mheadhoin with Derry Cairngorm visible behind.
Looking into Coire an t-sneachda. Snow here remained firm with a thin covering of soft snow.
