All this and sunshine too ….

3rd March 2020

(Above) Sron a Ghoire. Snow cover from around 300m / good from 400m

The little ‘nick’ on the open slope, above the first shoulder of Sron a Ghoire was the venue for today.

 (Above) The ‘nick’ or re-entrant  – up close and personal. The feature responsible for much of the water catchment leading to what we refer to as the NE Gullies on Sron a Ghoire. All useful ‘sampling sites above 800m for our daily information gathering sorties.

(Above)  Post ‘sampling’ – we work for our turns at Meagaidh, so nice to be able to enjoy them when they come 🙂

(Above) All this and sunshine too – the ride back from the Bealach, with Loch Laggan and the hills beyond towards Glenfeshie and the Cairngorms as backdrop. What’s not to like….

    Great report again, guys, and superb pictures. Planning to ski up Chno Dearg tomorrow from Fersit. Hoping not to have to boot-pack too much! Any idea of the cover round there? Thanks again.

      Hi Iain,

      Beinn a Chaoirainn the closest I’ve been to there of late (about 10K as the crown flies)

      I would think condition fairly similar – so I would expect to have to hoof it to around the 350 /400m contour.
      Suspect the snow will be a bit on the cruddy side come the downhill- after the 500m mark

      Hope you have a good day out with it all – good effort 🙂

      Thanks for your comments
