WINTER HANGING ON IN THE CAIRNGORMS

Coire an Lochain, The Vent looking the snowiest it's been all winter!
Fresh snow over the last few days and plenty of new windslab around
Fine mixture of windslab, neve, frozen turf and plenty of wind today! Braeriach in the distance
They think Spring is on the way
Good snow cover  on eastern aspects. Coire Domhain - snowhole still possible
Spindrift pouring down the Goat Track, Fiacaill Buttress looking very wintry
Rased footprints. The plateau with neve and fresh snow
Coire an t-sneachda
Happy windslab
With strong winds, cold temperatures and plenty of snow showers over the weekend it has turned the mountains back into a winter scene. A quick romp around the Northern Corries today and you could have been tricked into thinking it was around mid January time.  A fabulous mix of fresh wind slab, neve, frozen turf, water ice and strong winds it was a wonderful morning to be out. There was much snow getting transported into Coire an lochain and The Vent looked like it had more snow in it than any time this winter! Only a few folk out today on the hill. Some more weather tomorrow before a settled spell and warmer temperatures mid-end of week. Just now though winter is still with us!
