Deep drifting snow

We headed into Coire an t-Sneachda today to look at winter rope-work. It was a calm start to the day but bitterly cold. A relatively easy walk in as the path was well trodden but very circuitous!. However it wasn't such an easy walk when we headed off to flounder up to the Fiacail Ridge Ribs. Today Richard, Steve, Nick and James did well to find and uncover the buried rock belays as we pitched our way to the top! During the afternoon the wind speed had increased and the drifting snow quickly covered our hard won trail on the tedious and knackering walk out!
The strong winds forecast tomorrow will likely significantly change the snow distribution and create a high avalanche risk...
