A sunshiny day

7th April 2023

The snowpack was quite firm on all aspects at the start of the day, this gradually softned on sun exposed slopes, shaded aspects remained firm. ┬áToday’s good visibility made for an excellent opportunity to take some general photos of conditions up high. ┬áThere were a few ski tourers heading for the plateau and beyond, also hill walkers, mountaineers and climbers making the most of the good weather.

A great day for anyone heading to Braeriach.
