At this time of year snow conditions are pretty unpredictable (OK its always unpredictable!). But when it’s good it is great. Today, with no climbing partner but good conditions my established strategy of loitering around the Cas car park paid off as Stephen and friends (including Massey the dog) were already there. Terry met us on the top of Cairngorm on our second ascent, with Sky, the dog. Great skiing off the back of Cairngorm in windless blue skies was a reward for the ‘car park loitering’ strategy. A great day was had by all. The Tele skis came out to play 🙂
Pretty reasonable conditions in Corrie Sneachda today. At this time of year conditions come and go, but today was good early conditions, yesterday less so, tomorrow? Who knows? Climbed the Haston Line on Mess of Pottage which was entertaining as usual. Matt and Alasdair’s smiles say it all!
Great weekend on Shetland delivering first aid training with Cory Jones and the First Aid Training Cooperative. Two courses completed for sports coaches and exercise professionals; lovely people and great place – although didn’t see it in daylight. Do they get daylight at this time of year?
Another strong south westerly easing up today, another one and colder next week. Already feeling sick at the prospect of a 12 hour ferry to Shetland tonight!
Thanks for joining me!
