It is hoped that the following information will help anyone who wishes to contribute details to the site.

You can add details of a line through the Add a line form

Which lines should be included?

The original intention was to only include gullies and faces that would achieve a winter climbing grade, but this would result in the omission of many really good descents.  This then leaves it open to interpretation of what should and shouldn't be included. It's a difficult one.  I think it will just be a case of adding lines that feel right,  The inclusion of the existing lines should provide a guideline in itself.  If you want to have a line included, it would be ideal if you are willing to supply good photographs of it from an identification point of view, and of it being skied/boarded.

Why are there obvious gaps?

There are some very obvious mountains not included in the site at present.  It's a case of adding details as I get them.   Over time, these will hopefully get added.  If you have specific details of any good descent lines on, then i'd be happy to include them.

What I won't be doing is adding further details to Aonach Mor, or any details for Aonach Beag.   This is following the publication in November 2013 of Scottish Offpiste Skiing & Snowboarding: Nevis Range & Ben Nevis by Kenny Biggin.  I knew there were plenty of other lines to be added to Aonach Mor, and hadn't got round to exploring Aonach Beag yet.  In fairness to Kenny, I am happy to encourage you to buy his excellent guidebook to find out what else is available on these mountains.  Ben Nevis is different though, and some lines in the guidebook will appear on this site as they were well known about prior to publication, assuming I ever get them skied (especially the Castle Gullies!) 

Similarly, with the publication of the Scottish Offpiste Skiing & Snowboarding: Glencoe guidebook from Kenny Biggin in November 2014, I won't be adding lines in this area to the same degree that I otherwise would have.  The obvious gullies such as those found on Stob Coire nan Lochan (e.g. Boomerang, Forked, Broad), in Coire nam Beith (e.g. Hourglass, Central, Summit) and West Gully on Beinn an Dothaidh have been on "the list" for some time, and may add them if I get them done.  Either way, getting hold of a copy of the guidebook is well worth it.

Further details can be found on the "Route Information Help" page.
