Up on Beinn Ghlas near Ben Lawyers today with Davy, Glenn, Niall, Nic and Pamela. We were looking at a variety of Winter Skills and how to teach them.
There were snow patches from circa 650m and relatively good cover from around 900m. The back bowl of Beinn Ghlas had fairly deep snow pack following the snow on South-Easterly/South-Westerly winds over the weekend. This snow had been saturated by the thaw, but not to full depth and instabilities were found using a variety of test pits. There was also evidence of avalanche activity from the weekend. The turf was still firm at relatively low levels and was well frozen where exposed from around 900m.
Light snow showers during the day on a light Northerly wind giving areas of fresh wind deposits on lee slopes. Freezing level hovering around 950m.
