Avalanche Information for the Scottish Mountains
Avalanche hazard considerations should always be part of any winter hill goers daily plans and we would recommend that climbers, walkers and off-piste skiers currently venturing into the hills, continue to note snow and weather conditions in respect of any potential avalanche hazard. Be prepared to modify your plans accordingly.
We publish the daily forecasts of the avalanche, snow, and mountain conditions at the 5 most popular areas of Scotland during the season.
You can find out more about Avalanches or, about Forecasts or, about the SAIS by clicking on the relevant index link on the left of this page.
We keep an archive of all forecasts since 1993 which is browse-able and download-able.
Report an Avalanche
Our new avalanche reporting system makes it much easier for you to report avalanche activity you spot in the hills.
