Happy Easter

9th April 2023

It was another dry day with strong South-South-Easterly winds. There was high cloud and it was a bit hazy.

The snowpack remains well bonded and stable. After an overnight freeze at higher elevations the freezing level rose above the summits during the day and the snowpack was softening and slowly thawing.

Photos below from Carn Dearg Meadhonach which is a good viewpoint for the North face of Ben Nevis.
