Epic snowfall in the West


Just a quick post to announce the first significant snowfall of the 2010/2011 Scottish winter season. Overnight blizzards have deposited vast quantities of snow on all slopes--drifting slightly deeper on Westerly aspects (so reports James, who has driven up and down the Glen today inspecting various mountains).

With reports of frozen turf already on certain cliffs prior to the snowfall, and a forecast of freeze-thaw on higher areas over the coming days, things are already looking up.

From my perspective, this comes at just the right time. I haven't been on the hill in weeks thanks to dreadful weather on my days off, but the addition of snow into the equation will make bad weather easier to bear!
