Intense sunlight during the morning


 The overall snow cover is still very good for ski touring , although variable and a little sluggish in places.

Looking up towards Coire an t-Sneachda, some nice large basins of snow.

Avalanche debris from the previous day below jacobs ladder and the central gully area.  Weak sugar like facetted grains are still within the snow pack presenting snowpack weaknesses especially in areas of steep and convex terrain.
