The webcams at the Lecht are looking very nice this morning.. The Buzzard looks well filled. Maybe they will open some lifts ?

The snow looks amazing on the webcams, Lecht must have been in the firing line for heavy snow showers.

No. B976 and A939 are open from Crathie, but there is no vehicle access between Crathie and Braemar due to the closure of the Invercauld Bridge.

You sure Alan? Think I heard on the radio that the old bridge is in use. Maybe not for punters/tourists though.

The Stagecoach bus service has resumed and is free between Braemar and Ballater, but passengers have to de-cant from one bus and make their own way across the old Brig o' Dee (Old Military Road bridge) on foot then board another bus.

Looks like the Lecht is going to catch quite a bit today according to snow-forecast, I think a cheeky day off on Friday will be in order.

Nae bad wee day at the Lecht today! The carpark was full, but with the majority of the tows running, you never waited more than 5-10 mins for a poma.

The light came and went throughout the day, but it never got flat.

Give the horror stories coming from Cairngorm today, its definitely worth considering at trip to the Lecht instead.
