Escape from the Wild West to the Snowy East.

I headed over from Oban to Aviemore early this morning, hoping to beat the snow fall. Didn't beat it! As I got to Laggan the skies opened with the white stuff!
Aviemore is damp and very windy just now! Wind speeds of 140 mph up on the ski slopes where mentioned this afternoon, but it is due to calm down a little for Saturday.
I had a short ski tour behind Cairngorm Lodge today. By the time I got back to the van I was soaked, why do we do these things?
With a weekend of mountaineering skills courses coming up I cross my fingers the weather improves a little. What ever happens it will be fun up in them hills.
