Biked up the loch einich track from whitewell. Hit snow at the end of the trees so decided to skin from there. headed up the alt phris ghiubhais and cut into corrie beannaidh bheag. up ridge between coire rhuadh and coire beannaidh to summit. headed from summit NE into coire beannaidh then followed the burn line down to around 650m. skinned back up sron na lairige. run down coire gorm almost to lochan odhar then cut off east to pick up the alt a phris ghiubhais all the way down to the bikes. fantastic fun following the burn line. it was like a natural flume.
:: Weather Conditions
bluebird all day. very little wind.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
all the snow seems to have been blown away from the north side of braeriach. and we were skiing on hard neve/textured neve and sastrugi for most of the higher parts. Lower down lovely smooth spring snow.
