Ben Lawers car park to Meall nan Tarmachan and back.
:: Weather Conditions
Weather clear with some sunshine, winds quite light.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Snow conditions pretty good. Good skin up to the summit on predominantly fresh wind blown snow. A little icy on the North side before returning on a SW track on more windblown fresh snow. There was evidence of cornice collapse, probably from a day or so ago.

On B Chonzie from G Lednock
:: Weather Conditions
Surprizingly good! 35mph wind with spindrift and mostly clear with a good dose of sunshine.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
A lot of new soft. Wasable to ski from the car, but too soft to ski back to car as cut through to rocks. Higher up (above 600m) much drifting fresh soft. Good skiing where there is enough snow.

Stob a Choire Odhair via Beinn Toaig from Victoria Bridge. Intention was to continue on to Stob Ghabhar and descend via Stob Maol to Clashgour but illness forced an early retreat from the col between the two hills down Coire Toaig.
:: Weather Conditions
Fantastic day although a biting wind on top
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Very wind affected, plenty of snow on southerly aspects. Stob a Choire Odhair's west ridge scoured and not skiable. Stob Ghabhar's southerly ridge, Stob Maol, well covered and looked like it would have been a great ski!

Meall Ghaordaidh
:: Weather Conditions
Fantastic visibility in the clear patches. But the wind was stronger than we expected making last hundred metres a bit of a struggle!
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Pretty wind scoured but the odd patch of better snow. Fun skiing round the sheep on the lower slopes!

Ben More via Coire Chaorach and Coire Chlach, descending via Bealach-eader-dha Bheinn.
:: Weather Conditions
Beautiful cold day, little windy on top.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
As was expected deep powder low down, foresty tracks pristine, wind scoured as we got higher. Skis off and kicked steps on the final section out of Coire Chlach onto ridge, skis back on to top. Descent to Bealach-eader-dha Bheinn scoured then skis on for descent to car.
