Carn a Gheoidh from Glenshee.

First of all there must be some other tourers out there holding out against letting Facebook be the forum of choice for Scottish ski tourers. If you are one of them please post a tour here.

Despite all the thaw there is still some roadside access to the snow at Glenshee. We carried for 10 minutes at the start of the day and skied back to the road. Route out to Carn a Gheoidh and back over Cairnwell. Skis on apart for about 15m at top of the Cairnwell.
:: Weather Conditions
The forecast gales did not happen. We had a couple of hail squalls but enjoyed good vis for much of the time out.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
A little fresh on a deep and wide base. The snow/ice on the lochans showing signs of weakness.
