This week has seen some really good winter conditions. We had a good cover of snow in most areas and even the Cairngorm Ski area is planning to open the top runs for the first time this season. There is still hope for a good winter.

The walk in to Ciste Mhearad was a bit challenging with white out conditions just before we got in. And I managed to dunk my right boot all the way into a snow covered stream. We made it up there in good time and managed to dig a comfy snowhole within 3 hours. Not the fastest I have done but it was pretty good timing.
