The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise.

This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
Winds were slightly less strong today but still very cold over the summits
The recent strong East to South-East winds have scoured some aspects and redistributed the snow onto others. The localised effects on the main hills creates a wind funnel effect between them in this wind direction. This is evident in todays photos where you can see the band of erosion caused by the strong winds funnelling down the glen between Aonach Mor and Carn Mor Dearg
