Whiteout and warm fingers
8th April 2022
Cold Northerly winds and snow showers today. Whiteout conditions from just above the ski area which combined with strong winds and spindrift made for another challenging winter day in the Northern Cairngorms. Very glad to have my big winter gloves on!
The accumulations of fresh windslab have gained a little depth and become more widespread on wind sheltered East through South to South-West aspects above 900 meters. Isolated windslab is also present on West and North-East aspect due to cross loading. Wind exposed slopes are scoured and firm with some very serious runouts.
The Northerly airflow continues into Saturday some further light snowfall.
