14-01-16, Stob Binnein - Ben More, Southern Highlands - Ski Touring

Ascending Stob Binnein from the south.
 An excellent day of Scottish ski touring in Southern Highlands. I spent most of the day trying to keep up with Steve but it was cracking weather for my first day in Scotland this season. We had skins on from the van skinned up the northerly valley to Stob Binnein approaching the summit from the south. The 300m ski descent off Stob Binnein's NW aspect was magnificent, steady angle, good regular snow. Skiing off the side of Ben More was slightly more interesting, less good snow, a few cliffs to negotiate. At the end we had a few kms to walk on the forest track.
Trying to keep up!
Good snow cover, descent off eastern flanks of Ben More.
