Scotland Winter Conditions - Cairngorm Snow

For the second day snow has stopped play. The ski road has been closed again, after further snow fell last night. It is now up to knee deep at 300m and I would expect substantially deeper at higher levels. Much of last nights snow fell under calm conditions, so has not been moved around. The hills looked noticeably white with only a few people accessing them on skis.
We plan to wade into the corries tomorrow, hopefully the forecast northerly winds will help move a scour the corries (a little). With the slopes so loaded obvious avalanche hazards abound.
