Haggis Trap was here!



For anyone doubting the volume of snow, here's a Haggis Trap pix from the memorable winter of 2010!

So what's the guess at the depth there? 7,8,9-10m even?

Hard to fathom... grinning smiley

Glencoe certainly seems the place to be this weekend...wind has done a great job filling in all the gully's

top to bottom is a treat not always available

and the beautiful views



Be Nice to Skiers, they have it hard enough already

Dropped you a PM, there's an issue with the GD2 graphics plugin on this server build that is only processing very small images at present. You can email more pix to the email address in the PM and we'll get them up another way!

I was up on Glencoe last Friday, definitely one of the best days I have ever had deep powdery snow everywhere, Blue skies in the morning then clouds rolled in the afternoon, barely managed to get a parking space in the main car park as the place was super busy, there were long ques for all the lifts but really enjoyed the day, Super thanks to Andy for being very helpful in finding the lost memory cards.

Open to the top but things could change quickly as the wind is picking up round about, snow moving in later.
