Scottish Snow Report
Posted Saturday 11th February 2012, 10:52 am by Dunx
After a little rain earlier in the week, the temperature is expected to drop consistently below zero over the weekend and into the beginning of next week - and we may just get a little more new snow, but it certainly won't be worth digging out the snorkel just yet. Sunday looks to be the best day over the coming few, with blue skies and sunshine, although if you're going up on Saturday you may well get surprised with a little sun too. Strong winds will be blowing in early next week, and make it pretty grizzly, so Monday/Tuesday might be worth avoiding.

Park


If you're looking to play in the park, Glenshee still has the set up they had for last weekends Highlander comp which is well worth heading up for a slide on. Cairngorm still have a few bits and pieces out too, and Nevis may do, dependent on the weather but these are likely to be more limited than Glenshee.

Backcountry


With some milder conditions in the west, the snowpack has moistened by rain, and although well bonded on most slopes, there are steeper areas which are likely to be much more unstable. Towards the east in the Cairngorms, there is also some moisture in the snowpack and is generally stable, but there are still areas with unstable windslab. The risk is judged to be Considerable to Moderate, so be cautious, check the latest reports for the specific area you are riding in on the day and stay safe.
