A BIT MORE WINTER LIKE
Fiacaill Coire Sneachda
Plenty of rime
Best of any views today
Quiet along the ridge
A fresh dusting of snow and high winds last couple of days. The Cairngorms looking a bit more like Winter today. Plenty of rime ice along the Fiacaill Coire Sneachda ridge which was deserted. The plateau was also well rimed up. Plenty of folk out in Coire an t-Sneachda but no one along the Fiacaill and hardly anyone seen on the Cairngorm plateau, although visibility was poor so maybe it was! Minus 2 C on the tops with a 40mph wind. It certainly felt more like January. More snow would be very welcome .
