It has been a wonderful spell of weather, blue sky and not too cold, so on Tuesday I went and spent the day on the slopes. I was surprised how much snow was still around at Glenshee with every run complete and not icy at all, so I hope they keep the cover well into March. After my ski I went and had a look at the big machinery shed as I particularly admire the machines used to 'groom' the slopes. So using that classic chat up line 'I'm just admiring your machinery' I was offered a seat in one of them. Pretty cool inside and all computerised, think I'll apply for a job driving one.
