It was a pleasant surprise today when the clouds disappeared and we had perfect visibility with very little wind. The only problem was we werenât on skiâs! It was perfect for a tour with some soft snow on top of a harder icy crust. Of course in Scotland, ski touring always comes with a couple of butâsâ¦â¦. youâll have to carry the skiâs to get some access to the decent stuff and donât use the nice new oneâs you got for Christmas, on some aspects the snow is not as thick as it looks and there are a few rocks around
Looking to the main Cairngorms.
Waiting for some tracks.
Cornice collapse on a NE aspect around a 1000 metres. Sign of the recent unstable period we had. There has been a few avalanches reported in the area.
