Avalanche Forecasts



Having good awareness of avalanche risks whilst in the mountains is crucial to ensure safe travel. However, having accurate, up to date information before venturing into the hills minimises the risk of something going wrong. During the winter months the Scottish Avalanche Information Service (SAIS) provides daily avalanche forecasts in Scotlands 5 major ski areas. The forecast includes observations as well as predictions and an easy to read aspect risk diagram. Follow the links below to view the different forecasts. I have also included the area Blog which is published by the Forecasters and gives greater detail on conditions underfoot.




The Lochaber area covers Ben Nevis, The Mamores, The Grey Corries, the Aonachs (including the Ski Resort)
