Scotland Winter Conditions - Glen Coe

I was working for Jagged Globe today, taking an intro group up into the White Corries - the ski area at the start of Glen Coe.
It was a beautiful day with the freezing level at the base of the mountain, no wind and fine views. Ice is readily forming, there is good neve in places with softer fresh snow occasionally found in sheltered hollows. We covered a range of techniques from sliding to boot work, crampons to step cutting and bagging a Munro.
