Deep drifts in the Cairngorms

Deep drifts in the hills with a High Category 4 avalanche hazard on Cairngorm. Kathy and Alan were the observers for SAIS today.

We've had widespread snow accross the Highlands with strong winds accross the mountains. The Cairngorm ski road has been shut all day due to deep drifts on the road but the snow blower has been working on it throughout the day. Winds are forecast to be much lighter tomorrow with more snow showers.
