A short break to Creag Meagaidh.

I was out snow holing with the third years of the Adventure and tourism degree students last night. Andy, Gillian, Julie and myself took the fairly large group of 16 up through the window and out to a popular snow hole sight nick-named the W's. As we've had no fresh snow for about three weeks we were pretty sure any banks of snow in this area would already have snow holes in and thankfully we were right. The students had to do some digging to make the snow holes larger and were quite glad that was all that was needed. It wasn't a cold night but we did wake up to freezing temps and a bit of fresh snow. 

The routes in the inner coire are looking in great condition and we did see a team on Last post yesterday. The forecast is for a return to cold weather for the next few days and overall, very little precipitation. Fingers crossed for some great ice climbing in settled conditions in March.
