Avalanches


A sharp rise in temperature overnight along with strong southerly winds and rain meant snow stability was very poor indeed on Saturday... We heard about five separated avalanche incidents in the Northern Corries alone and several near misses!
The good news is that nobody was seriously injured and the north facing gully lines still seem well filled up with snow. With no drastic thaws and a few quick freeze thaw cycles over the coming week to consolidate things we could have a good snow ice base in the gullies and grooves. The climbing could be really good once it refreezes again....
There's some great photo's of Cairngorm's snow cover and skiing down Aladdin's Couloir on Friday on the following link here
