Mid AND late April snow!
Over the last week the snow has been firm in the mornings but softening by the afternoon.
The main climbing gully lines are still all complete with some thickish ice and sagging cornices in places! The buttresses lines are now black but with snowy ledges, approaches and finishes.
The plateau has complete snow cover and great ski touring. On piste there's still good skiing on the upper and middle runs. The lower ski and the corrie off-piste runs to the carpark are now patchy and require heather hopping and walking.
The weekend and next weeks forecast is for the return of colder weather and more snow!!!
