Skinned up Caerketton from access road to Hillend dry ski slope and down easternmost south facing ridge to Boghall. Up alongside Boghall Burn to Allermuir Hill and down SE ridge. Skinned back up Allermuir to descend through Swanston (fortunately snow on the road!) to junction of city by-bass and A702 - and the number 11 bus home!
:: Weather Conditions
Snowing for a few hours and near white out conditions on top for a time. Cold, fresh wind! Cloud base slowly lifted through the afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
North facing more find affected, south facing powder but lower down there had obviously been consolidation as there was a nice base with fresh snow on top!
