Coire na Ciste and a lot of snow

It was a different world out on Cairngorm today compared to yesterday with heavy snow falling throughout the day. KC and I went to Coire na Ciste today to find somewhere a bit sheltered to practice lots of skills for moving safely abut the wintry hills. There was even a convenient snowhole which we could pop into now and again for the occasional cup of tea!
The drifting snow also gave us lots to look at and we were low down so it will be interesting to see what conditions are like higher up tomorrow.
Back down at the Ciste car park it was very wet so we went back down into Aviemore to plan and pack for our overnight expedition tomorrow.
I was working for Talisman Mountaineering today and Ron was out and about in Coire an t-Sneachda with Su.
