Westerly winds with snow.

There is new snow above 600 metres and quite a lot of drifting has taken place at higher altitudes. Our pit was dug on the South-East side of Cairngorm today, the visibility was pretty poor on route especially as there is a lot more snow on the ground making the terrain look very featureless. During the afternoon the cloud lifted and the Cairngorms looked stunning.
