Dusting of Fresh

23rd March 2019

The old snowpack has frozen and has become very hard and icy in the colder temperatures. A little fresh snow fell overnight. However, these fresh deposits tended to be very shallow.

Walking up the hill this morning as the cloud began to clear. There was some drifting of the small amount of overnight snow which fell.

The South side of Coire an Lochan as the cloud began to clear.

Looking over to the Mamores.

The top of Spikes Gully. Most of the snowpack was very firm and icy with a few shallow pockets of fresh snow. A group of skiers can just be seen at the top of summit Gully in the distance. It looked and sounded like an “exciting” ski, particularly for one of their number.

Looking East to the Grey Coires.

Aonach Beag. Not much ice on the North East face.

Coire Dubh seemed to have caught a bit more fresh snow than over by Summit Gully. Ski tracks looked to be on a fresh (if shallow) layer of snow for most of the way.
