Cold with drifting snow

Cornices along with  deep poorly bonded windslab forming on lee slopes.  This is looking towards Cnap Coire na Spreidhe 

Firm hard snow on wind exposed slopes good cover in the Ptarmigan bowl area above 1000m

Looking across towards Cairngorm summit, crampons are handy for crossing any steeper slopes if your ski touring as its hard neve on windward slopes.
