Glenmore Lodge weekend January 2015
This weekend was a training weekend based at Glenmore Lodge. On the Saturday the forecast was for gusts of 100mph wind, wind chill of minus 20c and an avalanche warning of Category 4 on southern slopes over 700m, so we decided to do a lower level ski tour from the lodge to Stac na h-lolaire (742m), via Ryvoan Bothy where we stopped for a hot drink to warm us up. Wild weather and some complex terrain to navigate through still made for a challenging day out even on a lower peak. Sunday was a really useful training day at Cairngorm with excellent instruction from Roy Henderson.
