At last some visibility as nightfall brings a parting of the clag.

Report
The North wind left the Northern Cairngorms under a cloud, while even Strathspey had sunshine - thus it was not a day for taking many photos. Great underfoot surface conditions, but limited visibility on Saturday.

Freezing fog, feezing to googles was more of a problem than the actual visibility. The result more people were using the lower slopes that were partially clear, while the M1 Poma was deserted in the afternoon.

The Fiacaill Ridge had a few inches of fresh loose powdery snow on a base of wind packed snow, with better visibility this was the pick for many. Lower slopes are much improved from last weekend with a good cover of beautifully groomed machine packed powder snow.

More snow expected overnight, hopefully as the showers clear through, they'll take away the hill fog too.
