Ive been at various locations in the NW this past few days and am enjoying a rest day after 10 days on the trot before i start up again. We have suffered warm and wet conditions these past 2 weeks in the Highlands, but last night we had fresh snow down to 200m and it is much colder. I would think that the turf under the new snow will still be soggy mind.
I was in the Northern Corries on Monday and noted that the freezing level was above the top of the crag (the forecast was wrong) and the turf wasn't frozen. Careful route choice is important.
