Surface facets and surface hoar make for fun skiing.

Skiing up in the Valhallas today with six other friends - a larger group than I normally like but who can say no to friends?  We had clear skies to start but, by mid-afternoon a mini-storm had moved in.  It was chilly - 12C on my thermometer with a nasty cold northeast wind blowing.  The cold temperatures had facetted the surface snow and together with a healthy crop of surface hoar, the skiing was fast and fun.

Here's a link for some video from the day out.
