I had a wee wander up in Coire na Ciste on Ben Nevis today. It was a bit cloudier than recent days, and felt a bit warmer. The old snowpack is hard and icy with a generally shallow layer of softer snow on top. Occasionally the overlying softer snowpack is a bit deeper. However, these deeper areas tend to be isolated.
