Davy Virdee and I were thwarted by the early morning snow and traffic in Edinburgh this morning, so didn’t make the planned climbing trip. I had to make do with a quick ski ascent of Arthur’s Seat. Able to ski pretty much to the top using short skis and had some good runs down the east side on fresh and sledge pisted snow. For what it’s worth any exposed turf is well frozen, not much ice forming and the fresh snow was around freezing with a bit of moisture content.
