Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Stob an Cul Choire via AM Summit Gully, exiting from bottom of the Braveheart. A nice wee bit of variety from the pistes esp with the backs being closed.
:: Weather Conditions
Dissapointing really, briefly hazy bluebird but a cold easterly up top with cloud beginning to touch the top of the Ben with Aonach Beag obscured with rapid contagion westwards. Freezing at all levels in the morning rising to c600m pm.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Hard, very hard although massive drift of windpacked powder top of Summit Gully gave a false sense of optimism and boiler plateish in the gully itself. West face of Stob an Cul Choire much better with large drifts of windblown pow. easterly aspects are heavily scoured and road round from Braveheart to Rob Roy was particularly poor. Lot of snow at the bottom of Bheart and once it softens and the chair gets running there will be good skiing.
