Ski or Walk?

3rd January 2018

A cracking start to the day but it clouded up around lunchtime. Snow cover is good but still generally not deep. Skiing up is good  but combat skiing skills required for coming down.


Beinn a Bhuird looking good. Plenty snow up high.


The Tors of Ben Avon in the sun.


Cloud rolling in around lunchtime.


2 skiers middle of Corrie Fionn. Note in the foreground the grass tussocks sticking through.

      Many thanks David! Hopefully we’ll get a decent Winter this time, fingers (and everything else) crossed.
