Braeriach
Parked at Whitewell, walked into Lairig Ghu. Skinned up to top of Sron na Lairige. From there, went on to summit of Braeriach, changing frequently between skiing, skinning and carrying skis, so the extra climb didn't really add much extra skiing. On return was able to ski from Sron na Lairige at 1184m for 2km down to 775m, in Coire Gorm. Then traversed out on skins, for a final short but steep ski off the ridge, back into the Lairig Ghu. The long walk in and out gave me blisters. I had considered taking a bike, I don't think it would have saved time on the way in, but would have been welcome on the way out. Wearing trainers to and from the tree line would have been good.
:: Weather Conditions
Nice morning. Some gusts. Cloud came in above 1200M. Overcast in afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
A nice big virgin patch of snow. Not fresh, but not melting. Scottish Summer Skiing!
