Flat light morning.

19th January 2016

Much the same as yesterday, it started cloudy but became a bit clearer in the afternoon.

Nearly cleared at times.

Ground starting to break through.

The snowpack is gradually changing. At lower levels features are starting to break through. With the current cooler temps it is a slow process though.

Mountain Hare, nothing much to eat here!

Mountain Hare, hiding under a cornice.

I’m not sure what the hare’s are surviving on but there was fox footprints following the hare prints today!

Started to clear up.

Started to clear up.

Other than the light today, the general ski-ing conditions remain excellent and it’s still the better way to get around the hills.

East Face Glas Maol.

At the end of this face where it joins Little Glas Maol is Banana Couloir (or previously Caenlochan Gully/Hookers Gully). It’s become a popular ski descent, accessing it from Glenshee Ski Centre,  another 3 skiing it today when the cloud cleared.

    Hi, great work, reports and photos…thanks! I was touring last Wednesday and we came across a fox below “The Snub” or South nose of Carn a Gheoidh…an unexpected surprise. Great snow and ski descent into Batheacbeg Burn (Glen Brighty on Sunday, stearing clear of the burns and cornices.
