Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Started from the carpark in past the biathlon range, past shortcut, along Normans Way. Tree down, but passable underneath (watch your head). Up herringbone Hill and along the Haute Route to partway down Leids Leap. Was a bit dodgy on the downhill so turned round back to Shortcut and then along Hedder Way to the bottom of Leids leap. Out via Deertrack and Classic Start
:: Weather Conditions
Sunny. Temp was -2C in Kenethmont and +2C at Rhynie, 0C at the Clash carpark when I arrived, about +4.5C when I left in the early afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Started fast and icy, softened and slowed during the day. Most main trails complete, thin in places.
