Almost May and still winter in the Cairngorms!





Great snow cover on the plateau and the northern corries. Winter is still hanging on in the Cairngorms with good skiing on and off piste. 
There's still some fun winter ice climbing in the easy and mid grades and the trick is to do the climbs in the morning then ski the gullies in the afternoon once the snow has softened and not the other way around! Jumping Jacobs cornice onto the frozen gully below at 02.00 with a headtorch is not a great idea nor is climbing it at 15.00 when it's in the sun!!! 
Many of the climbing gullies have been skied as well as climbed as can be seen from the selection of excellent videos below!
