Firm snow at last!

I opened my front door this morning to see some blue skies and feel a chill in the air, I knew then it was going to be a good day. I was out with the other half of the West Highland College group from earlier in the week and working alongside Andy Spink. We headed up on the Nevis range gondola and stepped out of the top station onto firm snow, which felt like bliss after walking through knee deep wet snow for the past few days.

Morning sun on the mist in the Great glen.

 We managed to cover lots of stuff around the Nid and went on a small journey taking in some steeper ground and the guys did well and are looking forward to their next two days in the Cairngorms next week. The snow did soften a little towards the end of the day and was a little variable on different aspects but is firming up nicely. It was so nice to come home with dry kit, a great day out on the hill.

Scott's enjoying himself.
