NW and Cairngorms conditions.

We've had quite a lot of new snow this past week in the NW and the Cairngorms. Ski touring on the tops in the Gorms and places like Ben Wyvis are again now pretty good.

Ive been working in various places in the NW, many of the easy gullies whilst full of snow are a bit of a wade at the moment. The brief sudden thaw event coming Wednesday will give a significant avalanche danger increase but when it freezes again after that conditions should be excellent with firm consolidated snow abound.

The turf is still not great mind, the larger pieces are not fully frozen, but may be better above 900m.
