Stormy but Snowy in Scotland

I've been working on another 'introduction to winter skills' course this week. We have used the white corries to introduce crampons and axes, summited Stob Corrie nan Lochan via the NE ridge, blown around on Anoach Mor and climbed steep ice at the ice factor.A lot of snow has fallen on the high mountains today and yesterday, creating avalanche problems as it forms slabs with the strong winds. The freezing level looks set to remain low, which wont help stabilisation of the snow, but hopefully ice will be growing on the cliffs.
I'm hoping my new camera will arrive next week so I can display photos again.
