Glen Shee

Woody and I were out today for a quick blow away of the cobwebs and for Woody to get a snow fix. We headed up to Glenshee setting off walking around midday to avoid the worst of the weather and taking in Carn Aosda and The Cairnwell.

There’s patchy snow down to road level although the warm and wet weather overnight and through the morning had significantly reduced the snow pack. Some ski tows open and people were ski-ing and ski-touring. Patches of fresh snow higher up were saturated and relatively well bonded to the older snow. Lots of water in the burns. Turf still fairly firm at height particularly where sheltered from the recent rain. Temperatures dropped during the afternoon and there were snow flurries down to road level as we left.
