On Saturday skiers Toni (nordic freeheel skis), with Villo and Simon (alpine touring) did Carn Aosda from the Baddoch burn.  After following the mainly snow-covered track for a few km we crossed the stream and ascended the shoulder above loch Vrotachan to the west summit from where we had a 500m descent on improving snow.

On Sunday the weather was cloudier but colder and the north face of Sron na Gaoithe had good snow cover.  Skinning/fishscaling straight from the car, we had an enjoyable run back despite some flat light.
