WHAT'S LEFT OF THE SNOW
Coire an Lochain
Lurchers Gully & Braeriach
Still no sign of fresh snowfall in the next few days. On the plus side it did feel colder than yesterday on the hill. Needed an extra layer, hat and gloves on the top of Meall a' Bhuachaille today in the stiff breeze. Northern Corries of The Cairngorms looking quite depressing at the mment. Coire an Lochain is the best place for snow just now. Please don't all rush there and hack it all to bits as I'll be there with winter skills groups next few days! Temperatures are coming down and looks much colder by the weekend. Keep the faith folks, winter can return within a day or so, as we've all witnessed this winter.
