100 mph winds, 13 degrees in Aviemore but deep snow on Cairngorm!
With valley temperatures rising to the early teens and winds gusting 100 mph, we headed up high for a day digging snow shelters and looking at snow belays. It was a long hike up but we were rewarded for the effort. We were completely sheltered and the deep snow drifts surprisingly deep, firm and extensive - the guys had fun digging!
