Ski Tourers

The lifts in the Glen Coe ski area did not run today due to the strong winds. However, there were plenty of ski tourers out taking advantage of the superb cover found above about 650 metres.  A slight drop in temperature had frozen the surface of the snowpack above about 900 metres. Below that level conditions were quite good if a bit wet and sticky in some places. All change tomorrow though with another spell of heavy rain to summit level.
