The Beast from the East never really hit us here in this part of Scotland. Other areas got lots of snow that prevented folks from getting here, but otherwise it was business as usual around Aviemore. The mountains caught a lot of the snow, especially further east, and everyone and their dog has been out ski touring. Further west where it's been also very cold but much drier, ice lines have been forming all over the place and lots of lots of teams have been getting involved.
With over 20 people having to cancel the courses with us, we were left with a much quieter time. Nonetheless, we've had a couple of winter skills teams out and provided some avalanche training.
The weather warnings have been lifted and the roads are cleared so it's worth making a trip to the mountains, where they continue to be in excellent form.
Please enjoy some snaps from the last wee while.Recent articles
