Glenshee 8th January 2010

Friday trip to Glenshee in one of the coldest spells in 20 years. Gareth and myself met Jon & David W. up at Blairgowrie and headed on up to Glenshee. The temperature was around -11 but the sun was out and sky was blue.

Again, considering the amount of snow lying around the whole country, there is surprisingly little on the hills in comparison.

Although plenty, a lot gets scraped or blown off the hill.

Unfortunately the first three lifts we used all stopped, this was like the bad old days. However the rest of the day passed without hitch. Cairnwell side was quite scraped, but going over Sunnyside to Glas Maol we scored some choppy powder.

A great , cold, white looking Glenshee gave me my third shred of the season and the cold spell looks like lasting at least another week.
