Avalanched in the Howgill Fells

by backpackingbongos

With the exception of accidents whilst trying to drive to them, we can forget how dangerous the white stuff can be in the British mountains.  Avalanches are often a hazard in the Scottish Highlands and there is the excellent Avalanche information service website which gives a forecast of the conditions.  But an avalanche in the Howgill fells?  Jake Morgan has written an excellent post on his blog about being caught in one last weekend.  Well worth a read.
