:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Biked up Glenisla to the very top of the Glen to check out some lines. Seeing as the "banana couloir" leading into ceanlochan glen was in bad nick (plus lacked snow lower down) we opted for a route into Canness Glen. Hiked up beside the zig-zag path to the plateau. Proceed across to the South of Cairn of Claise before cruising down to a gully we'd scoped out earlier.
:: Weather Conditions
Sun : )
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Great spring snow. Looked to be good cover towards Garbh coire. Sporadic to the south. Had to do some grass hopping to get down to valley floor.
