Its always good at the start of the season to go out with professional professionals. Yesterday, this came in the form of Mark from the Scottish Avalanche Information Service.
The service has loads of interesting things happening this season which can be found on their website.
The Northern Cairngorms and Lochaber areas will be publishing their first reports for the season this weekend with the full service starting on Wednesday.
The latest reading (1048) from the Cairngorm Weather station show that the mean windspeed is 74mph with a gust windspeed of 102mph.
Slightly grateful to be indoors....
