Good visibility (at last)

2nd February 2013

It was the first day for a while that the tops were clear from cloud and it was good to see plenty of people out and about enjoying the wintery conditions. Both the skiing and climbing conditions are looking pretty good at the moment. I saw evidence of at least 3 substantial avalanches, and heard about another one,  which came down during Thursday. 
 Plenty of snow in the south Side of Coire an Lochan. 

 Looking over to Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis behind. Just out of shot to the right an avalanche released on Thursday just below the ridge line which is about 1090m there with debris being visible below 800m. Although not very wide it had travelled about 300 metres vertically and over 1/2 km horizontally. I did take a picture of it, but it didn’t really show up very well. 

 Looking South towards Aonach Beag. 

 The cliffs of Coire an Lochan looking good. There were quite a few climbers here today. I suspect Ben Nevis would have been busy as well.
