After the Thaw

20th December 2022

Yesterdays thaw has stripped back a lot of the recent fresh snow. The cover that remains has refrozen and is firm and stable. There are now serious run outs onto rocks below many steep slopes. There were light snow showers throughout the day today with variable visibility.  Difficult ski conditions today due to the refrozen snow!

Looking into Coire an Lochain, the snow cover in the foreground much depleted, better cover in the coire itself.
