Archived Happy Snap

31st January 2009

Sorry, no photos of today’s soggy snow. I need re-training after a spell away. (above) gratuitious happy snap just to test the technology and in the vague hope of trying to put to bed rumours of a late start this morning!

Quote from 29/01/09 below…

“There’s good enough and deep enough snow cover in places to have a ski tour with a final descent through trees – yes, glade skiing!”

Hmm?…..least I meet with a group of deranged telemarking powder hounds looking for retribution.

Let me assure you, glade skiing at ‘Meggie’ there is not – there may have been during the past week, there may even have been when my colleague left his words of enthusiasm, but for now any immediate prospects for glade skiing at Creag Meagaidh will only be if the Loch rises a little bit further and a passing boat can be found!

Some say it was the Malt and Haggis, some that the shift had been too long and hard – I say, it’s impressive what an overnight freezing level of 2500m can do to glade skiing…..I wish my colleague all the best in his next encounter with – ‘the Stig’ (sorry his Jeremy Clarkson alter ego coming through in my rantings)

I’ll be having words……

Ps. Many thanks to one of our gear sponsors, Mountain Equipment. The Windstopper Soft Shell trousers were road tested today – just the ticket!
