+Coire an t-Sneachda from below Fiacaill Ridge, 107 kb Friday 04th January 2008 - Storm in the Cairngorms; Report by: Jonathan Yates.

"With snow and cold temperatures forecast we headed to the Cairngorms on Friday. The weather forecast was for strong winds gusting up to 60mph so we decided to go in to Coire an t-Sneachda due to its close proximity. It was snowing quite heavily with strong winds making the walk-in quite challenging with deep drifts in places and strong gusts swirling around. As we approached the coire conditions worsened and the gusts became stronger and more frequent."
