(Above) Good high level touring options today for ski tourers and snowboarders alike out and about on the tops. Firm underfoot, with plenty of softer snow cover between icy sections.
(Above) Blue skies for the most part. Ski tourers here approaching the summit of Geal-charn 916m, Drumochter.
(Above) Good stability in many places; although localised pockets of windslab in sheltered lee locations – and still presenting with reactive shears when loaded. Here at 870m on a South Easterly aspect.
