Warm and windy all week!

 As the title says it's been very warm and windy over the past week and a a half with some heavy rain at the start causing the 'Great Slab' to slide and avalanche over Saturday, Sunday and on Monday. See the SAIS blog here for some great photos that show the scale of great slab avalanche debris....
Due to the 'hair-drier' effect the seasons great snow cover has gone leaving only the main Grade 1 gully lines and corrie headwalls complete. At lower levels only patches and thin strips of snow remain.
Still some large snow fields on the Cairngorm MacDui plateau for ski touring and over on Braeriach but the continuing warm weather is taking it's toll and cover becoming more and more patchy by the day.
