Ski touring at Cairngorm - 14th April

Another great day skiing and this time I spent the afternoon going up and down the runs at Cairngorm in great conditions though there was a bit of a cold wind. Towards the end of the afternoon, I skied over to Ciste Mhiread with Ron and we found some great drifts to play with then up and over Cairngorm and down to Windy Col on the most excellent snow.
We put the skins onto the skis and headed towards the Goat Track with the idea of skiing down but conditions at the top were a bit scary and scoured so back up towards the ski area and down the Coire Cas headwall.
I never realised skiing could be so much fun!
