/ Pentlands powder 22/01/13
snow conditions are variable, most of the skin up Allermuir was on nice filled in paths but the slopes eiether side were patchy. West and N West facing slopes had nice stashes and descending Allermuir towards boghall i could link some drifts with thinly covered grass. i then went onto Woodhouselee hill and descended the trees in lovely powder, shame about the new fences otherwise this would be a really good run!
Low down seemed to have better snow, my bets would be on good snow on the west side of scaldlaw, or anywhere off the flotterstone ridge above the reservoirs would be in good shape. all tracks have good cover
Thanks for the update. I'm considering heading out this evening by headtorch. From watching the rain radar it seems like the Pentlands missed the best of it. Lammermuirs appear to have caught a lot but access may be tricky out there.
Lammermuirs and moorfoots may be better - always worth a try! let me know how it goes
