Today the snow in Clashindarroch forest stayed pretty firm to icy within the shade.
In areas exposed to sunshine the snow soften
I went for a long ski starting from clash carpark, up to the windturbines, up Black Hill then along ridge to 527m hill, then Grumack Hill, and onto the Trig point on Red Hill at 522m, linking snowfields along the way with some bits of heather skiing.
and retuned by continuous snow cover along Western Edge of the forest, and an excursion Cloiche Dubh to look at the Geology - schist erratics by Turbine 9.
a long ski, over 5 hrs and 26km covered
with more snow it would be great to carry on all the way to Huntly (with car shuttle arranged)
has anyone ever done this route and carried on along ridge to Huntly?
