Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Geal Charn from Balsporran Cottage. Skinned from just west of the railway line to the just below the summit. Skied down by roughly the same route, linking patches of snow to 540 metres, then carried our skis to the bottom again.
:: Weather Conditions
Dry and bright with some sunshine. Cold wind on summit.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
A mixture from wind scoured to soft snow in the heather. Some evidence of windslab on East through South East aspects but could be avoided by staying closer to North Easterly aspects.
:: Skiers/Riders
