It's still snowing

The weather station on Cairngorm summit still looking a little snowed under
We had light snowfall for most of the day with poor visibility leading to white out conditions on the hill.   A few parties were out ski touring and hill walking and we all agreed that GPS was useful.   Generally cover is good above 800 metres with snow on all aspects.  Above 1000 metres the snow is still quite cool and light, but more heavy below this altitude.  Weather outlook is to become more settled with sunshine.
