Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Skied Lochnagar from Glen Muick. Enjoyed a good run from the summit of Lochnagar down to the Sandy Loch, expolered the corries and then back up to top of White Mount before returning down ridge to W of Glas Allt burn.
:: Weather Conditions
Benign, sunny conditions.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Exposed ridges scoured, but reasonable cover elsewhere. There is extensive base on the plateau, but all recent snowfall had been scoured away. Skied from and to about 550m on the Allt na Giubhsaich. Avoid Cuidhe Crom which is completely scoured out.
