23-03-14, Cairngorms - Winter Skills
Winter has returned and another weekend of winter skills in the Cairngorms. The last 2 days have given some new snow on the East highlands (not as much as reported in Lochaber though), along with freezing level down to 500-700m. Some new wind slab has been forming on lee slopes of the mountain, with a changeable wind direction over the past 48 hours, set to swing around again tonight. It is however quite obvious where these pockets of dangerous snow are at the moment.
