The very snowy Northern Corries from Loch Morlich. This is Scotland in April, an alpine paradise for ski touring on the plateau, ice climbing on Ben Nevis, mountain biking in the valleys and rock climbing on the sea cliffs. It's also strangely very quiet.... God's own land...!

Great skiing and well done Cairngorm Mountain...!
Large Coire Cas headwall avalanche crown wall and debris. There were ski tracks going into the top of the crown wall and coming and out from the base of the avalanche debris. I wonder what happened in the middle...!
For the first time in ages we didn't mind paying for the ski pass at Cairngorm with the added bonus of the late opening. We had three last runs as everytime we returned to the bottom of the ski tow knackered, the closing time was put back 15 minutes later. Being true Scots we had to get our money worth! A video will be uploaded later of the ski conditions on Cairngorm and my video analysis of Fi's third time on alpine type skis after three years!
