Saturday turned out a lot better, brighter and drier than forecast. It was actually quite pleasant sitting in the sun on the dry heather next to a roadside snow drift for lunch. We had a good day going through the basic winter skills on spring snow sheltered from the high SW winds. Later on we drove up to the less sheltered Coire Cas carpark where we saw several cars that had their windows broken by the wind blasting - this is a fairly common occurrence and is not caused by local thieves as many southerners seem to think...! It's to be colder tomorrow so the spring snow should freeze up hard and be ideal for crampon practise.
