29-01-10, Cromdale Hills - Ski Touring

After a mild and wild last couple of days, the temperature has shot down, -1 degrees outside in Grantown this morning. It has snowed a little over night as well. There will be some windslab forming on South facing slopes because of the Northerly winds, however routes on North Faces like Ben Nevis, Creag Meagaidh will be in awesome condition.
The skiing isn't too bad either! We went on a tour of the Cromdale hills today, sunny spells and occasional blizzards! Fairly hard snow but was very enjoyable away from the hustle and bustle of Cairngorm Mountain.
