snow transportation

Beinn Bhan and An Fur

Nathan guided Jon up onto Liathach in ‘challenging’ conditions on Friday.  As expected they encountered graupel as well as soft fresh snow which made reaching the 833m bealach very hard work.

On Saturday I was treated to a text-book display of snow transportation on east facing slopes 300-400m above the village.

Sure signs that unstable snow is being deposited somewhere!
