Cold with Drifting Snow

Picking a way down the Goat track in Coire an t Sneachda
Cairngorm Plateau with Sneachda cornices visible on right

New snow accumulations of soft slab are present, deep in some places which gives some suspect slopes. generally the soft snow can be avoided at present, but the stronger winds with more snow will make the windslab accumulations much more significant.
