We headed East today in search of snow and ice, with a beautiful walk into Creag Meghaidh. The temperatures didn’t drop quite as much as forecast and so it was pretty wet and warm up top. We found enough snow to further our ice axe arrest skills and in fact the warmer temperatures helped us – the snow was way more comfortable for sliding on than it had been earlier in the week! There is more snow forecast this weekend and it will be gratefully received but having said that, whilst reaching the snow involves some loooong walks at the moment we still have enough to learn everything we want to learn, the mountains are beautiful and also quiet and my boys this week are fit enough to enjoy it so life is good!
