A bit of snow at higher levels

17th February 2012

There didn’t seem to be much snow when walking up the Ben today.

However, up in Coire Leis at around 950 metres I was surprised to find a substantial area with between 20cm and 50cm of fresh windslab. This windslab was dense and sticky. As shown in the photo, I did managed to produce a shear failure, it required quite a lot of effort.
