:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
From the Glen Clova Road in the Angus Glens to the summit of Ben Tirran. This so called peak claims a cairn on the map but we could not find it. Start at the Weem Cottge Plantation
:: Weather Conditions
Still and sunny at the road but quite a strong breeze by the summit. Sunny intervals.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Snow from the road. Total blanket cover on the plateau North to Glen Esk. Easy Ascent but descent in the deep wet crusty snow can only be describhed as fiendish. Should be great with a good hard frost.
