Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Glenmore forestry visitor centre to summit of Meall a Bhuachaille. Then down to Ryvoan with the snow getting better the lower I got - amazing powder skiing through the trees. Then back up to the top, then back down a steeper line on Creag Loisgte direct to An Lochan Uaine, before heading back to the visitor centre via Glenmore Lodge.
:: Weather Conditions
Very chilly. Blue skies, clouding over later. Wind picking up at the summit but completely still at valley level.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
I didn't think I would ever ski snow of this quality at this altitude in Scotland. Unbelievably good.
