DRY, bright, windy and QUIET!

Despite the forecast of rain overnight and on Saturday afternoon it turned out to be a completely dry and fairly sunny day but with a strong SW wind.
Today we had a Winter Skills weekend and five day Winter Mountaineering course starting and I had the able assistance of Becky who was shadowing the course in preparation for her forthcoming Winter ML assessment.
We parked in the shelter of an empty Coire na Ciste and had a good day looking at ice axe arrest techniques and cramponing skills on good spring snow and ice in Coire Laoghy Mor.
In contrast to the last few weeks of queues we didn't see another sole all day - yes School mid-term has passed and February too is almost gone...!
