Ski Mountaineering

Getting to grips with kick turns and skinning

A snow canon with a very heavy work schedule 

After yesterdays warm spell with heavy rain this morning looked much brighter with a hard frost some fresh snow and clear skies we decided to make use of the only consistent stretches of snow at the ski area. We got to grips with skinning making our way up through the ski area looking at some kick turns.
The crags looked much whiter this morning after the overnight snow and hard frost. Plenty of teams where out in the Corries climbing with others practicing skills on various patches.
