Not frost....but ice!

Well... despite no frost overnight I decided to head up to the Lower Manorburn this morning and was treated to a great skate.  Smooth, hard dry ice.  Was a bit of a surprise as I thought it may have weakened and softened in the warmer temps.  Able to skate much of the main basin although it was creaky further out.  Water at either end of the main basin with an ice shelf up one side towards the neck.
Nice to cut a few curves....

Ice was weakening in the sun as I left.  If a few frosts come it might last a bit.

Fresh curves of fun - on smooth ice..
