A Wintry start.

15th December 2017

Great to start the season with some snow! Generally there is a light covering of snow with deeper drifts in sheltered locations. There had been light overnight snow with some drifting. Andrew and Kate from Glenshee Ski Patrol noting two small sluffs on Carn Aosda early morning.


Thanks Andrew, Glenshee Ski Patrol for the picture.

Main roads were mostly clear of snow.

The Slide, A93.

It was a cold and windy start to the day, visibility was poor above 900 metres. The ground was scoured where exposed to the winds, deep drifts in sheltered locations.

Sam fighting into the wind..

In some places deep deposits had developed.

Dog Ice glad to get back on the job, it was a long summer!
