Ski Touring, Cairngorm

Well, seem to have misplaced my camera so no blog photos, never the less we had a good days ski touring with Will yesterday at Cairngorm Mountain. Had to navigate around the summits thought and snow conditions are very variable and high up on corrie rims etc one has to be incredibly sensitive to the terrain as its quite unstable. At lower altitudes, below 750m conditions are great although there are large patches of exposed ice on wind blown slopes which are quite treacherous! On piste, and where the piste machine drivers have been, the skiing is magnificent!
