:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
We were able to skin from the car park at Linn of Quoich with only a few bare patches on the track. Crossing the river was possible using ice bridges, although these had degraded by the time we returned back later. The snow was firm on climb, and on plateau, but never icy. On the initial decent off the South Top, the cover was wind-scoured, but this soon relented, leaving at first hard-pack, then lower down corn conditions in the Snechda bowl.
