FYI preset status in Switzerland

Hmmm, seems like Plan B will be in operation next Monday… Sunday as well most likely. Thanks for the information Brian.

In reply to G8ADD:

Yes indeed, the met office fell top conditions report does not paint a very savoury picture at present, and with more snow forecast it’s unlikely to be getting any better…

Looks like I will be walking to work again before Spring arrives.

Ah well, I do need the excercise :wink:

Take care those of you who do go out, & don’t take unneccesary risks or do anything that would put yourself or anybody called out to rescue you at risk.

Be prepared!

This winter does seemed to have dragged on a bit longer than usual.

Sorry to bump this one, guys, but the carnage continues:


I remember being hit by a big powder snow avalanche in Crowberry Gully on the Buachaille, we were belayed at the time, so we took the hint and retreated!

In reply to G8ADD:

The latest SAIS avalanche forecasts are mental for all the forecast areas.


And that is if you can get to the highlands in the first place!

Update: Just read that an extreme warning was actually considered (although not implemented) for tomorrow in at least one area

A big avalanche and 2 very lucky skiers
