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.
After an overnight re-freeze the snowpack slowly began to soften through the day time, spring like conditions were encountered by the afternoon especially on sun exposed slopes. Â Heavily shaded slopes remained firm and icy with a hazard of serious run out potential on steep slopes below. Â A similar picture is expected tomorrow.
