Too much snow.

It continued to snow on Thursday and Friday at all levels making it not just hard work walking but also treacherous for avalanches.

On Thursday we did some navigation, wading around the forest near Ballachulish.

Friday was an ice factor day, going through technique and rope trickery.

I had a day off today and took the opportunity to go skiing on what turned out to be a nice calm day. On the East Face of Aonach Mor the slopes looked loaded, with the crag itself partially buried.

I'm sure it doesn't need to be said, but please take care - there have been one too many tragic, unforeseeable, accidents this year for us all to deal with. My condolences go out to friends and family of those that have been taken from us.
