Who turned the fan on?

19th February 2023

A stormy day with rising temperatures.  Within a few hours summit temperatures rose from minus 4C to zero degrees by mid morning.  The Westerly airflow increased in strength with gusts of over 100 Mph during the afternoon.  Saturday’s pristine blanket of snow feels like a distant memory…

The Cairngorms at 8.30 this morning.

A few hours later at 1.30 PM.

Debris from single point release avalanche on a North facing slope at 1100 metres on the Cas Head Wall.

A mountaineering group take shelter from the wind on an East facing slope.

A quick view of Coire an t-Sneachda before the wind ramped up.
