Avalanche Activity!

26th January 2018

After quite a variable week weather wise, it was back to fine, cold and settled conditions today. There was plenty of evidence of recent avalanche activity on Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag today. Looks like all change tomorrow weather wise. With patches of slab, and some substantial cornices remaining, and rain forecast at all levels, I think there could be a bit more avalanche activity tomorrow.

The South side of Coire an Lochan. A couple of recent avalanches are visible, one below the buttress in the centre of the shot, and the other just this side of the ridge.

A lone skier enjoys the views from the Aoanch Mor/Beag col. Ice has stared to form on the crags on the left, but the routes are still looking pretty thin. ,

Looking down An Cul Choire. Older avalanche debris can be seen coming down the slope on the right, and and more recent debris of the steep slope in the centre of the shot.
