- Glen Tilt – worth it this weekend?
Don't even think about it if you are talking about the circuit. Last Thursday there was still some ice sitting on tracks at 400m, and Glen Tilt circuit takes you to 550m. Last night gave us another 3" of snow in the valleys, so probably 6" higher up. Plus snow melt would make the Allt Garbh Buidhe crossing "interesting"Posted 7 years ago
Depends how much falls over the next 48 hrs but forecast is for significant accumulations. As CM post implies some of the turf was still frozen before this so it looks highly unlikely you'd get round that circuit during the early part of next week.

Judging by the webcams and the forecasts I'd say nae chance of Mount Keen until well into next week. Wouldnt bank on anything around Dunkeld being rideable either.
10th is still a long way out – a mild snap and change of wind direction would strip most of this snowfall back off quite quicklyPosted 7 years ago
Yeah I think local is the key for the weekend, I hear there is some excellent riding straight out of the town!
Loch Muick from Glen Clova so about an hour and a bit from Dunkeld (although not probably in these current conditions!!)?
Mount Keen for another time for sure!!!!!Posted 7 years ago
Here's Loch Morlich at the moment. You do not want to be any where above 100m at the moment I would say. At Glenlivet the snow is 1" deep in places. Unfortunately it's also 4 ft deep wherever there is any kind of shelter from the wind. It's going to take a couple of weeks to shift even at lower levels if we get a thaw. Which has got to be inevitable hasn't it? Please!Posted 7 years ago
>I wouldn't get too excited about the skiing. The wind is far too strong so it'll be completely scrubbed in a lot of places<
Suit yourself – the webcams and early indicators from CML staff are telling a slightly different story 😉Posted 7 years ago
Well we had to try it….. Loch Muick…..and guess what, we had to give up when the snow got knee deep!!!
The thing it it was such a great forecast, sun and no wind, that we had to try it!!!
Of course we should have known better but hey worth it to be out in shirtsleeves!Posted 7 years ago
Riding more than 20yards in one go is overrated anyway 🙂
