Land of contrasts
It really was not so grand ski-touring in our local Cairngorms today compared to previous days. However it gave good navigation practise and the good news is that there is a lot more snow on its way. The avalanche risk is high and of course there is also cross-loading in the swirling winds. Mountaineering, here in Scotland is probably the best training area in the world! Ski and climb here, and you are ready for anything! Also the Squirrel Cafe at Glenmore and Cairngorm Mountain do provide ace hot chocolate when you feel you need a reward!
