stob binnein from the south.
Road was just about passable to hotel by Monarchyle, but we had snow tyres. Due to time spent digging out another driver we didn't have time for the complete traverse to Ben More, but the skin up to stob binnein on east side of Glen Carnaig was fun with amazing show conditions all the way, although slightly wind scoured on east and North East aspects

From Achaladair up into Coire Daingean and on up Beinn Achaladair. Descended back to the col with intention to follow the SE ridge up on to Beinn an Dothaidh but a combination of what appeared to be a significant cornice overlooking the ridge and laden slopes up to it put us off. Climbed a little way up the ridge and then skied down into Coire Daingean to rejoin our morning tracks on some of the best snow either of us have experienced in Scotland, if not in the Alps. Skinned back up and did it again.

Skied from roadside about 2 miles north of Glen Shee car park, up Carn Aosda, down to Baddoch Burn, then up and down An Socach. Returned to ski car park by Loch Vrotachan.
:: Weather Conditions
Cold, freezing at all levels, occasional snow and hail squalls.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Variable snow cover from about 550m. Ridges scoured, but good cover in burns and gullies. The summit of An Socach was blown out, but the gully (photo) gave a good descent followed by pleasant skiing down to the Baddoch Burn. Snow generally quite firm and well settled. Other hills to south and west also have reasonable cover, but glen bottoms below 500m are snow free.
