Yesterday Greg and James climbed the start of Sidewinder into Western route to make a pleasent link up. Greg said that conditions were as good as the day before, with the turf now frozen lower down. I would expect that there might still be some turf insulated under deeper parts of snow on easy angled terrain.
Today Greg and James said that there has been more snow overnight and the corries look amazing, but the wind is 80 mph at the carpark and forecast to pick up even more today. Having had 2 days already they have decided on coffee in Aviemore. Thinks are due to change a little in the weather later in the week, fingers crossed it will help things continue to improve.
