With a fresh dump of snow having fallen and winter having returned, Jon and Andrew headed up to Cairngorm car park to attempt some ski touring. The snow was great, but unfortunately the weather wasn't. We couldn't go beyond Cairngorm summit due to an unpleasant combination of zero visibility, high winds and a category 4 avalanche hazard. Instead we headed back down the pistes and diverted off to practice snowhole and rutschblock digging!
