31 March 2017: Beinn a' Bhuird Skiing Winter 2017

It's fair to say that the weather had taken a turn for the worse over the week.  I had the day off anyway, and it was Scotts only opportunity to grab an end of season ski, so we went despite the forecast.  It was wet and windy, but bad enough that it was funny.   We wandered into Coire nan Clach, and skied a reasonable line on "The Promotory".  There wasn't much enthusiasm for a second run, so headed out, arriving back at the car typically as the sun came out.  

Nearing the top of our descent line, having more or less felt our way up the cliff.
Fabulous visibility.
This was actually a really nice bit, despite the rain bouncing off the ground/snow.   Difficult to make out, but Scott is in this picture!
Getting some nice turns on good spring snow.
As if it was possible, it got wetter and windier at the mouth of the corrie, so we called it a day and headed for home.
