That's really useful beta-- thanks.

What I get from that is I could ski the plateau on Monday, but it might not be too much fun...

Hmm. I think it depends a bit on whether Mr Sun comes out to play.

In reply to Tim Chappell: Sun was out all today until late afternoon and softened everything perfectly for 3 steep descents on Aonach Mor. Think we did the first about 1pm. Morning wouldnt have been much fun.

Thats about right. there will be some new snow, it would be good if there was a bit of a thaw to make this stick a bit rather than blow around.

Cheers Graeme. I think I'll stick the skis in the car and go slush-/ice-chasing, then :-)

I was thinking "What does this lucky sod do for a living, then?"-- so I checked out your website.

Lucky sod :-)

Ha!
I'm actually working monday to friday as a school teacher this year, and do a bit of guiding at weekend (not much). Consequently i now get FAR more climbing and outdoor fun done (and 12 weeks holiday and a pendion!)
