Great views

30th March 2019

After an overnight freeze and a dusting of fresh snow it was a pleasant day with generally good visibility. The old snowpack had a frozen crust which felt icy on skis but was breakable on foot in most places. Aspects receiving a reasonable amount of direct sun, such as Coire Dubh on Aonach Mor, softened and gave some nice skiing conditions.

The Western end of the Mamores ridge. The largest area of snow in the centre of the picture is on Sgurr a’ Mhaim.
