â« “It’s beginning to look a bit/a lot like winter”â«
7th January 2022
Translation: “…a bit/a lot like winter…”
“…a bit like winter…” The mindset/outlook of those with nice skis and delicate tech bindings, generally used as ‘Sunday-best’ gear when the snow, snow cover and weather is good. (Rare combo, that, in Scotland.)
“…a lot like winter…” Err, those with rock-hopper skis, probably with frame bindings?Â (I know, a tad unkind!) Generally, game-on when the hills look the teensiest bit white.
For full disclosure. I’m a frame bindings-type of guy. (There. I outed myself.)
(Above) Clearer, brighter weather on the NE shoulder of Sron a Ghoire, which overlooks Aberarder Farmhouse. Note the wisps of spindrift. Drifting continued for most of the day onto steep N to SE lee slopes.
