After some heavy overnight snow showers it was quite a pleasant morning before further showers arrived during the afternoon. The fresh snow is not very well bonded on higher North to East aspects with some unstable looking cornices about. I suspect quite a few of these will come down either in the overnight warm blip, or tomorrow afternoon as the freezing level rises above the summits and rain falls at all levels.

Fresh snow at 650 metres. There was hardly any snow on the track here yesterday, most of this snow is fresh overnight. 

Some small avalanches in Coire Dubh. A number of small to medium sized avalanches were observed all the way along the Nid ridge. 

The top of Coire an Lochan. 

The top of Easy Gully looking pretty well loaded.
