Winter makes a return #winterskills #ski touring #cairngorms

Winter really has been like a yoyo this season so far. Last week things didn't look great and now we've got full on winter conditions with about eight inches of snow in Aviemore!

We managed a ski tour yesterday at Drumochter. It was good to be back on skis, but it was a pretty wild day with only patches of snow to link up. Today was the start of an intro ski touring course, a women only winter skills and a normal winter skills course. The skiers found fresh snow and good viz on the hills behind Aviemore andd the skills teams ventured into the Northern cories and up to Cairn Gorm. Plenty of other folks enjoying the winter conditions.
