"Arctic conditions in the Wicklows" from mcrtchly Contract pics
Picture: Arctic conditions in the Wicklows (Contract pics)

Wicklow weather - great but brutal conditions
Kernowclimber and I have just returned from snow shoeing up Lugnaquilla via the Zig-Zags from Glenmalure. Road conditions weren't too bad but a lot of compacted snow after Ballinaclash (we opted to use snow chains from here onwards along the Glenmalure valley). Snow conditions on lug were fantastic with in places 2 feet or more of snow. The snow was quite soft and upward progress was made much easier by snow shoes. The weather on top was Arctic with strong winds (40km/hr+) driving spindrift high into the air. It must have been at least -10C with the wind chill. A fantastic opportunity to witness the Wicklow Mountains in such amazing conditions (and no bog to be seen!).
