We went into Coire an t-sneachda which was busy with other large winter skills groups up on the Goat Track and Point Five Gully areas. We avoided the masses and found some good snow and ice areas before heading into Coire an Lochain in the afternoon and up onto the plateau where it was poor visibility. Light snow falling from mid morning through the day. A strong wind was whipping snow into the north facing crags which are looking much more winter like than 2 days ago! Low freezing levels with temperatures of minus 4 in Aviemore this morning. Below freezing at Coire Cas carpark in the afternoon.
Winter returns and looking good for next week with more snow forecast.
