Deep drifts of snow at all levels just now, we're in a winter wonderland. I took advantage of a few hours between other tasks to get out on the snowshoes in Rothiemurchus. Knee deep drifts in places, skis or snowshoes a definite advantage. It's apparent that this is all heavily wind blown as some slopes have been stripped bare of snow almost, whilst the lee slopes and sheltered spots are groaning under snow. Getting to the start of the day was fun, and would have been impossible without a 4x4! More storms tonight but there should be some great off piste skiing to find when things settle down a bit!
