/ West facing gullies in the Highlands tomorrow?
As good a theory as any, but bear in mind it's veering to the NE as the day progresses I believe, (or was when I last looked!)
Lots of fresh snow coming down (and getting blown around) up the Ben today. The wind was coming from the North as we walked out. Also worth noting is a substantial amount of graupel in the snowpack.
I wouldn't go near a gully for a day or two, whatever the aspect.
