(Above) Favourable touring conditions at present. Ski and snowboard tourers out and about today on Gael Gharn (926m) above Glen Markie, to the East of the main Creag Meagaidh range – rewarded with ‘skiable’ snow on most aspects; crusty at times especially at lower elevations.

(Above) Medium sized cornices around on many coire rims; these ones on NE and E aspects of Gael Charn (926m)
