SGURR GAOITHE-EXCELLENT SNOW CONDITIONS
The recent milder conditions, coupled with a bit of rain and some windy days thrown in has consolidated the snow pack very nicely. Today the sun came out and the high winds had died to leave a wonderful day on the hill. Karen and I had a nice day on Sgurr Gaoith from Glen Feshie. The cloud formations were wonderful this morning, with the mountains peeping in and out of the banks of cloud rolling in from the west. There is an excellent cover of snow on the plateaux and winter shaping up very nicely. We had an audience all day from the local gliding club in Glen Feshie with several gliders soaring over our heads through out the day. Only a couple of groups out on the hill today, one of which were having great fun doing some ski touring up and down the hill.
