Up to 3 foot of snow at archiestown. Tried to ski through forest but too many trees fallen on trails. Same problem with Speyside way! Finally arrived at Teindland forest, great skiing with no trees in the way.

Lecht car park to Meikle Corr Riabhach. Started off towards Carn Liath but quickly tired of picking through peat ridges. Skied the Buzzard run in combat style. In the afternoon walked up Scraulac and Cairnagour Hill, two nearly-Corbetts between Morven and the A939.
:: Weather Conditions
High overcast. FL above summits (about 800m?) Snow showers during the afternoon walk.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
4" of baseless fluff, deeper drifts in places. Not enough for skiing. An honest condition report from the Lecht.
