In reply to M0DDC:
I don’t really care that much about the winter bonus. If it was the score I was after, I probably wouldn’t bother with OH-SOTA anyway, since the closest summits with more than one point are hundreds of km away.
But in a sense, if the rationale for the bonus points is the amount of snow, cold weather and lack of light, it’s not such a big difference, whether the summit is 200 or 500 meters above sea level, -25 is mighty cold on both hills, especially with a little wind…
About the winter solstice activation, I may have to skip it for this year. I have to give a lift to my sister on Wednesday and the forecast for Thursday is -27 at the moment. I could do CW in those numbers, but keeping log would cross the line for me. But I’ll just have to wait and see.
