Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Haute Route via Highland Fling, Leids Leap, Deer Track and Classic Start.
:: Weather Conditions
Snow showers. Start of tour it was 0C at the carpark, when I left it was -1.5C
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Good, about 5cms of soft fresh snow on a hard base, giving ~15cms total. Still thin in sections. Leids leap now skiable downwards with care. I kept left, but there is still grabby gravel on the corner to catch you out.
