Sunshine and Showers!

12th April 2013

Actually just very light snow flurries that fell gently through the sunshine – quite a strange experience. It was a lovely day with almost negligible winds and it felt very warm in the sun.

The Glenshee Ski Centre is looking awesome for the time of year with runs complete from top to bottom and from fence to fence. The pistes are really well groomed and everyone seemed to be having a great time in the sun.

We really have had an amazing season and with the recent top ups of fresh snow, skiers continue to make fresh tracks all over the mountains.

If you are planning on get out on the hills tomorrow (Saturday)  – it looks like it might be worth getting an early start as the winds are set to increase steadily through the day. We’ve got some ‘weather’ coming through on Saturday night into Sunday – so it’s probably worth being tucked up in the pub by the time that hits!
