Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Hope Hills in the Lammermuirs. Skis on from the carpark at the road end along to West Hopes, then up to Lowrans Law linking snowfields. Skiing back down NW faces.
:: Weather Conditions
Sunny intervals with occasional wet snow flurries.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Surprisingly pleasant skiing. Areas that were hard windslab had been transformed into spring corn like conditions by the warmer temperatures. Heavy snow in more sheltered areas. Still deep accumulations of snow on lee aspects and depressions. Summits mainly snow free due to previous wind scouring.
