Scotland Winter Conditions - Cairngorms

I was in the Cairngorms today reviewing a variety of winter ML skills at Glenmore Lodge. The old snow had all frozen hard, with fresh snow being put down all day. Initially it was falling as graupel, which wouldn't help the avalanche conditions giving a loose 'ball bearing' layer for snow to slide on. Strong winds and more snow tomorrow will make for further challenging conditions.
