Winter in Full Swing

Its been a busy 3 weeks since New Year mostly working for Glenmore Lodge, Learn to Lead, Winter Mountaineering, Winter Skills and a hill and safety course with Arqiva who look after the TV and Radio masts countrywide.

Conditions up on the Cairngorms are in full swing with an amazing cover above 750m very similar to what we had back in 2010, even although its not been very cold low down, the continuous low pressure systems have been packing the snow in.

It was snowing heavy this afternoon above 900m with still strong SE winds. The climbing routes in the corries were buried at the start of the week so id say there may be even less rock showing now, maybe everything will become grade I.

A few photos below of today and the last few weeks.
