Lots more snow forecast for the weekend

Looking good for the Easter School break...
MWIS PLANNING OUTLOOK: all mountain areas of Britain from Thursday. Overnight rain, snow on higher slopes, will persist into the morning on Thursday before clearing to the east with cold and very showery strong northwesterly winds following. By Friday the winds will be northerly with freezing levels lowering further and snow showers at most levels over the Highlands. There will be potential for significant snowfall, blizzards and severe windchill from Thursday onwards into the weekend. See http://www.mwis.org.uk/mountain/EH.PDF
Fi is out snowholing tonight. Apparently this afternoon it was raining outside at around 1100 metres but was nice and dry and cosy inside the snowhole. Tomorrow the snow level is dropping to 700 metres and it's to snow for most of the day - report and snowy photos later!
Conditions are looking good and we still have two places left on our Winter Mountaineering course starting on the 28th March to the 1st April 2009. We're also running guided Winter Climbing and Winter Skills courses through to Easter or later!
