It’s not cheating if we’re on a break. Sorry Glencoe, but with now snow in the west I had to up-sticks and head east to make the most of some recent snowfall.
I left Glasgow super early and arrived in the car park at Cairngorm Mountain by 8am.
Poor conditions prevail and the guys at Glencoe along with Snowpark Scotland, pulled a freestyle park together on the sledging slope for The Gathering. On the upper mountain Main basin continues to be the largest area on snow on the hill.
Day 10 for me snowboarding at Glencoe.
Things were starting to look desperate on the mountain regarding snow cover. I had friends visiting with their kids and some had very little experience on snow. Hw would they get on?
Day 8 at the UpBattle Splitboard demo, Glencoe Mountain Resort .
Despite the continuing thaw in positive temperatures, the UpBattle Splitboard Demo went ahead at Glencoe Mountain Resort.
Day 7 of the season at Glencoe Mountain Resort was fair, dry and icy. Conditions were hard in what snow was available, but still a good day.
Day 4 of my snowboard season at Glencoe. The forecast looked hit or miss with winds expected and heavy rain the week prior. Warm temperatures didn’t bode well either. But, this would be my last weekend before I head off to the Alps on holiday. Needless to sat the Coe did not disappoint.
Day 3 at Glencoe Mountain Resort, The weather was good with scattered cloud and sunny spells so when I got to the summit, Happy Valley lay before me. Lots of little pockets of wind blown powder to hop between. With my lightest solid board on my feet, I felt like a spring chicken.
