:: Snow Conditions & Info
After radar skiing at Nevis range, today was a breath of fresh air. Perfect visibility and perfect snow. I was going to tour today, but was unable to find a touring buddy and had developed a cold so I opted to tour from the top of the lifts. All the open runs were in decent shape with the ciste and then the WWP following the initially offering of CPT, M1 and CAS T bar a little later. M2 was great, ditto M1 all the traverse runs in grand order, Ciste skiing well, and plenty lines from top of CAS. The top half of the lady was great with the lower half a bit 'ball bearing'. The bowl skiiers right of the M2 was also grand. I headed up to the summit the. Down Ciste Mhearad. Great for the top half, but soft and 'grabby' snow lower down. I stayed clear of the steep pitches as did everyone else. The temps over the comming days likely to wipe out the lower slopes, bit plenty touring to be had!
