19 March 2016: Cairngorms Tour Skiing Winter 2016

A forecast inversion was too good to miss, and a grand tour taking in Ben Macdui, Braeriach and Cairn Toul was planned.  The problem with grand plans is that they are easy to make, but often change during the day.  Our planned big descent off of Braeriach was switched to a tour round the corrie rim to Cairn Toul for various reasons.  This worked out great, as once we were swallowed up by the rising cloud on Braeriach, we were able to ski out of it and witness it cascading over Braeriach.  Quite a sight.  Unfortunately, the big descent off Cairn Toul was getting a bit crispy by the time we got to it, but we were able to ski all the way to the river.  A long, but satisfying day. 

Slightly gloomy cycle, but with the promise of sunshine in the distance.
