A brief return to winter.

I was out on the Bauchaille yesterday with Hannah and Davie just working through a few things ready for next month. The snow line had gone up quite a way since I was there on Saturday. There is now only snow at the back of Coire na Tuilach for the last 80-100m before you reach the Bealach. There was water running every where and unsurprisingly we were all saturated by about 2pm so ran away for coffee and cake in Glen Coe village.

The temps have dropped today and there is fresh snow lying above 900m but it is forecast to warm up again tomorrow evening for a few days. People will be out today and I'm sure it won't be long before we get an idea of what is left to do on the Ben. In Stob Coire nan Lochan the snow is now patchy up to the very foot of broad gully and there was no snow on any of the Buttress'. Over in the Cairngorms things aren't looking too good either. Have a look at Al's and Max's blogs for photos. I'm sure winter is not over yet and we will see some more snow and ice building again but it does look a bit depressing at the moment.
