more snow than you can shake a snowman at
Sat, Feb 7, 2009
Not for here though, just a smidgette that was enough to snow us in and stop me making it over to Kincraig to meet up with friends at the Orion MC. I was planning on getting up Jacob’s Ladder (I) and Fiacaill Ridge (II) but that would have been unlikely as Aviemore had a foot of snow today and the top lift was closed due to winds. That would have meant whiteout conditions and with an Avcat of 4 the “norries” would have been out of bounds. It’s cleared up a bit now, although there’s more cloud coming in:
If conditions stay good and the snow consolidates I think I’ll head across to Beinn Bhan and nip up Suspense Gully (I) but only if we get some melt/freeze cycles as all this white stuff is blowing around making for really hard walking and unstable windslab. We shall see, as they say.
You can see all this pics here.
