Skiing in low visibilty

 As I headed up the hill, the visibility got worse

Today having been stood up by my climbing partner I headed up to Nevis Range with th eplan to Ski out to Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag. However as I headed up the ski tows visibility reduced to only a few metres. It was impossible to ski at any speed at all as you couldn't see far enough ahead. I decided to stay on piste to see if the weather improved and spent a few hours skiing down runs (by memory from yesterday more than actually being able to see where I was going) and deploying emergency stop techniques when fences materialised less than a metre away. The visibilty showed no sign of improving so I decided to call it a day and go shopping instead.
