Apres work ski tour on Ben Rinnes

17.00 Left office
17.35 Left Ben Rinnes car park carrying skis
Skins on at about 550m
18.40 At summit
skied down the north eastern slopes, then skinned back up to top of Roy's hill for another ski down to about 100m from the Land Rover track
20.00 Back at car before dusk
:: Weather Conditions
Pleasant evening on way up. Weather closed in whilst at summit.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Still nice snow fields on the northern slopes, which you can't see as you walk up the path amongst very thin cover. With not too much heather hopping I managed to get close to the track for the walk out. I have been itching to do this since the clocks changed. It would have been better a week a go, but still making fresh tracks after work beats watching the bill.
