Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Toured from home to work on south side of Aberdeen. For 'safety reasons', staff were allowed to leave the office from 2pm - thanks HR! Returned via same route, seeing other ski & snowshoe tracks, then toured in woods on Kincorth Hill (105m). No mega vertical, but soooo much better than working...
:: Weather Conditions
Early thunderstorm deposited an inch or two of very large graupel followed by sporadic showers on light northerly wind.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
8-10 inches of accumulated powder, twice as much in drifts. Forward progress easier where snow had been packed by feet, sledge or snowplough.
