As there’s loads of snow in Scotland right now and the weather forecast for Friday/Saturday
looks good is anybody interested in a quick trip up there.
If so get back to me soonest on 07468 697805.
Plan to stay somewhere near Aviemore but open to other areas.

I am in Aviemore (at FRCC hut) at present, where it put down a couple of inches in the village this morning, but it now (1pm) feels quite warm in weak sunshine. There is a lot of wind forecast over the next few days, with some thawing, but severe wind chill on the tops. I am due to go in to an Eagles meet at Corrour (Loch Ossian) tomorrow, though the estate road (from Laggan dam) is currently impassable. My week has been rather frustrating so far, as the good days (which are few and far between) have been needed to get access to/from where we were staying (was in Glen Affric over the weekend) with limited achievements in between. The avalanche danger is also quite high, with a lot of windslab about. You may get some good skiing, but it’ll be a bit hit and miss. Apparently the pistes are very crowded, as it’s half term for some Scottish schools. My plans are slightly uncertain for obvious reasons, but I’ll probably be heading south on Sunday. Good luck if you decide to come. JBFebruary 13, 2018 at 5:04 pm #11424
Thanks for weather update etc. Hope you make it across to Corrour. Have now arranged to ski
with friends at Glenshee on Friday plus possibly Saturday as well.
Look forward to catching up when we’re both back.

I will be travelling up tomorrow for some climbing but have not yet decided on destination. Aviemore, Torridon and Ballater are currently in the running but I will be making the decision when I see the new forecast this evening.
