Cloudy but dry.

 A hazy morning with areas of cloud floating about, in this case over Buachille Etive Mor.

 The cloud came in by the time I got up to some snow. 

 In some areas the surface of the snow has quite a lot of dead grass, dust and other derbis lying on it. The lines on the centre right are caused by people doing standing glissades down the snow. 

The remaining snowpack consists of large damp melt freeze grains (the grid in the background is 3mm)
