Glen Clova Meet: 27-29 March

Cairn Dearg MC Hut, Glen Clova

Despite a poor forecast, Saturday turned out to be not to bad - albeit a mite blustery on the tops.  Munros and Corbetts ticked and the Glittering Skellies skellied.

Allan and Kevin taking the bikes for a walk up Jocks road.  The return was a lot quicker.

Time for a wee bit of navigation to make sure we're en-route for the correct hills

Kevin the human wind guage, if he did this on the top he'd have landed in Dundee

Uphill Ski section in the sun

Part of the Uphill ski team take to Meall a Bhuiridh, Glencoe.  We skied up to the bottom of the Flypaper run then headed east for a great run down towards Creag an Fhirich on soft sugary snow.
Unfortunately the further down you go the more you you have to go up.  We climbed the east ridge to the top before heading down to the cafe for a wee rest.
