Out in the Pentlands above Carlops today with Jen, B and John. The Pentlands are in great condition for ski touring at the moment (from the views all of the Border hills and the Ochils would also give excellent touring).

There’s good snow cover right down to the road. The snow is slowly consolidating, but is still generally soft and there’s been very little wind transportation/scouring so there’s cover on all aspects. Below freezing all day at all levels with blue skies and sunshine. Side roads are pretty snowy/icey so care required.
