ANOTHER CALM, COLD DAY IN THE CAIRNGORMS

Fabulous snow conditions on the ridge
Cloud breaking up at the top
Fun on the Fiacaill
Good snow cover
Ski tourers on the plateau
Pete
Full snow cover on the plateau

Mountain Hare at last!
Sun in the afternoon
A beautiful end to the day
We were once again blessed with another nice, calm, cold, dry and sunny day here in The Cairngorms. It was a fun day out with Pete & Lynne, we were up on the Fiacaill Ridge, along with many, many other folk out in front of us. We hung back and by the time we got up to the fun bit we had the rest of the fine ridge to ourselves. A cloudy, very cold morning but the cloud slowely lfted and by mid afternoon we had some lovely sunshine. A great covering of firm, hard, scoured snow on a lo of aspects making for great walking and climbing conditions. Still drifts and wind slab in some areas so as always check the avalanche forecasts for the latest conditions. A grand day out. Tomorrow is looking superb, clear skies and extra cold!
