Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Stob Gabhar from Victoria Bridge via east buttress. Skied from south of peak northwards into lower couloir, walking one section as the new snow melted before I got there. 280m total vertical. Back between Stob Gabhar and Stob a Choire Odhair.
:: Weather Conditions
Mainly sunny with puffy cloud. Some spots of rain.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
New snow was wet but good to ski. It was balling, and possibly not safe on the steepest slopes.
