As of yesterday – perfect conditions really (was snowing again as I was leaving though). Some of the trails (red&blue) are clear of snow (esp lower and under trees) – rest have crunchy snow but generally grippy. A few icy patches – easy to spot. Had the place to myself I think!
Car park ok too – including the steep hill. Buzzards is closed apparently.Posted 6 years agodukeduvetSubscriber
was there yesterday late afternoon round the red route and coulda’s decsription is spot on. Thought I had it all to myself! Was so still and peaceful.
Spooky Wood descent at the very top had a few inches but just made it all the more fun, railing round snow covered berms is recommended! Good snow, no slush and not much ice.
Get there asapPosted 6 years agoProphet2Subscriber
Heading up GT to do the Black and a few off piste bits tonight. I live just over the road from Glentress and we have had some rain today but mostly it has just been sunny and windy.
Of course hat has no bearings to what the weather can be like on higher ground 😈Posted 6 years agolegolamMember
Any news from GT today?
I’m thinking of heading up there tomorrow with my occasionally mountain biking boyfriend. If we did, we’d probably stick to the blues around the top car park, maybe going up to Spooky Wood on the fireroad to do that descent. He’s not a confident (or fit!) mountain biker – am I mad to even consider it?Posted 6 years agoBoardinBobSubscriber
