Today we were out on our local Cairngorm National park. Conditions are still very good and we found some nice snow for the descent. It was bad visibility on the main higher summits but on Meal a Bhuachaille to Creagan Gorm and Craiggowrie it was very good. It did feel cold in the wind but the snow cover is good. The descent down the NW aspect of Craiggowrie was superb, until the forrest,which is always a bit survial-ish but still we were able to keep our skis on all the way from the road side.

There was a thaw a few days ago but since then its turned much colder with some heavy snow showers. Its very nice here. I take this opportunity to remind you that because of Covid-19 we have to keep to the following guidance
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise.

By mid February we may well all be able to enjoy the hills again. At the moment we are permitted to exercise and enjoy our local hills - please stay safe and stay local.
