Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Thanks to@charlie.wilkinson, for another fab picture. It strikes me the informed highland skiers chose Glen Feshie instead of the trade route up to Cairngorm.
There are additional pictures on British back country showing untracked mountain sides (above Glen Feshie)

@Rogerdodger, thanks! This photo is actually taken from Sgoran Dubh Mor looking towards Braeriach after climbing up from Glen Feshie.

Glen Feshie certainly seemed popular with locals yesterday and was well rewarded. Cairngorm is less appealing at the moment with the snow gates closed at Glenmore.

I drove a couple of miles across southern Edinburgh this morning and saw multiple skiers walking up the pavements towards the Pentlands with skis strapped to their backs - around Dreghorn and also at Colinton. Wowsers, not often you see that in the capital!

Bitterly cold last night - Edinburgh got to -9C and parts of the southern uplands -18C...

@denfinella, I was one of them on Friday the 8th, it was kinda out of desperation as we cant travel to the Cairngorms or out to the Alps.

However it was great day out and felt very Alpine.

I was up touring for sunrise this AM in the Pentlands. Some nice short gully runs of pow pow - genuinely good snow ! Made sunrise on Capelaw and took coffee on Black Hill which had waist deep sections. Quite funny walking back down at 10 to home (Colinton)

Feel very jealous.

While I am about 15 mins drive from hitting the pentlands, I shouldnt really do touring / off piste due to my metal hip (and now isnt the time to place more pressure on hospitals with a self induced dislocation).

Fantastic pictures / stories though, keep them coming so I can live vicariously through them !!

@GreenDay, interesting, whilst I’m not in the market for touring at the moment, there not being any easily accessible hill from home (and all the local snow has melted this morning). Having had a shattered femur repaired and full hip replacement in autumn 2019, my surgeon told me in October that there was no reason I should not resume off piste skiing and touring. Having said that I think I bound to be more nervous when it actually comes to it.

Hope the rehab is going ok.

To clarify, mine told me that I could do exactly what I wanted, but that if I resumed high impact activities (I ran and played squash as well as cycling, skiing etc) then the likelihood of an early revision increased. I canned the squash and running for that reason.

He was a skiier so answered my next question before I got to it - he said that if it was him, he would avoid moguls and off piste because if you hit a rock, a dislocation in an implanted hip was bad news. I got mine done in 2011 at the age of 43, so I had many (hopefully !) years of physical activity ahead so much of what I do is - to an extent - self policing.

@GreenDay, interesting indeed. My was done at 60, I had already had a resurfacing 4 years earlier, but had a largely unrelated accident. Interestingly I returned to skiing (including off-piste and eventually touring after the resurfacing, with no ill effect, although the first fall was a moment of truth). I have sold my motorbike on the basis that the benefits did not outweigh the risks, but I do not feel the same about skiing.

I’ve always been struck about the different medical opinions, but after all both the medics and the patients are all different.

Good luck.

Choosing another hill in the Pentlands because your first choice is tracked out... we live in strange times! Toofy Grin

This is just Hell - so I feel like that's me done. No wonder people are suffering mental health issues... Confused

Dummy well and truly spat out and all toys chucked out of the pram....Planning on checking no more cams, or snow reports (home or abroad) until we can actually move the car off the drive and go somewhere.

Now thinking the ski come back could be autumn glacier skiing at best...

GFS ensemble mean persistently below average and we look to be moving into a cool/cold unsettled pattern with a polar trough digging down across or near the British Isles. Detail will chop and change, but there is certainly the potential for some places to get a pasting over the coming week to 10 days, some of the operational runs of various models are posting snow totals in the 1-2m range, some are showing the West getting the most others the NE Cairngorms depending on where has the onshore wind.

So feel for the Scottish ski industry - particularly after the awful 2019 season

Let's just hope for some vaccines and a good late season
