The North wind returns

1st December 2021

A return to winter with new snowfall and cold temperatures on Northerly winds.   The main paths into the corries are fairly easy going but off the beaten track it’s a mix of deep drifts in lee areas combined with breakable crust were the old snow remains.  Poor visibility today which is quite common for the Cairngorms during a Northerly airflow.

Underfoot conditions at 950 metres.

New drifts developing in lee areas.
