Looking down on the Glas Maol Poma from the Traverse to Centre Gully.

Awsome!! Centre Gully pisted to 10machine widths and still plenty unpisted.

Fionn Coire - The White Coire, living up to it's name.

Coire Fionn Poma's and in the distance Glas Maol Poma.

Butchart's Access Poma doing its stuff.

You can even get big air on route to Glenshee! The Bridge of Gairn, A939.

The route to Glenshee... the B976 Gairnshiel to Crathie road.

Heading home on the A939 - Sundown over the Cairngorms from Strathdon.

The view up Fionn Coire to the out of bounds area.

The Cairngorms from Glas Maol Summit, blue sky and snow as far as you can see!

Report
Glenshee has struggled with very marginal cover, more so than any other Scottish Resort in the past two seasons, but in 2001 it was a different story. By mid February, the cover at Glenshee was already the best for years, and the heaviest falls of snow were still to come during March.

However access was a problem at times, the A93 was blocked for nearly 10days from the South as even the snow blowers couldn't make any impression on the huge drifts, and avalanche debris that had swamped the A93. Similarly problems getting from the Strathspey side meant we never got to Glenshee again during the 2001 season, as for much of the winter the B976 was blocked, and every day we had available, the A939 was closed between Strathdon and Deeside, or between the Lecht and Cockbridge.
