Hi,

I know snow is expected today but what height was the snow line to yesterday? And what type of conditions before any new snow?

We'll be doing aonach eagach tomorrow.

Adam.

The blog shows what it was like on wednesday, so expect that plus more snow since. :)

Aonach Eagach was virtually stripped before the new snow, which looks to be down to about 2,500 feet but not heavy. My guess is that it'll be quite awkward in these conditions.

I've not been high for a while, but looking out of the window the clag is currently sitting at about 650-700m covering the top of Mam na Gualainn on the North side of Loch Leven where there appears to be a dusting of snow. Prior to that it's been really cold all week, but dry, and the snow level has been receeding.

There's been old snow in the gullies of Sgorr nam Fiannaidh facing the village, but no significant cover visible from down here - but of course the glen holds it for a lot longer.

I'd expect to find plenty of verglass up on the ridge tomorrow. ...but you never know until you get up there.
