It was all about the Aspect

You know it's been a good day when you have taken 48 photos.

This weekend sees Alec and James on the Mountaineering 4 Skiers course that I run with Mike Austin from the Avalanche Geeks.  We were also blessed with Glen's presence - an American Guide who has only skied in Scotland once before, and that was Tower Gully.  So today it was buy two and get one free.

With a superb forecast and stellar conditions (yup, the clue is in the title folks - and if you got it wrong you would have been skiing boiler plate ice) we decided to make the most of the big mountain ski routes.

If you never knew better you would have thought you would have been skiing in the Alps today - just easier to get to and no crevasses to fall into.  Happy days ...
