Back in Drumochter

Steve and I were back out in Drumochter on skis today with a ascent of Sgairneach Mhor 991m. It was blue skies and calm wind on the way up but near the summit the wind picked up and the clouds rolled in. Our plans for the horseshoe were foiled by the distinct lack of snow on the other side as the winds had scoured it completely. We ended up skiing back the way we had come but this was great with some icy but continuous skiing all the way back to the car with only a few hundred metres of skinning required on the way back.
