Blizzards in the Cairngorms
We've had a lot of snow in the Cairngorms today. After yesterdays thaw all the melt water has re-frozen so there is a lot of sheet ice around underfoot in wind scoured areas (good for the climbing). The skiing was amazing at lower levels with several inches of fresh fluffy powder snow on top of a firm base. There were white-out conditions at times higher up during the heavy snow showers.
Today's view is from the SE side of Cairngorm looking out towards Bynack Mhor.
