January catch up

January has been a frustrating month for those hoping for non-stop winter conditions. Temperatures have been up and down, alternately bringing good snowfalls only for the snow to be washed away into the rivers a few days later. There have been plenty of stormy days, but some quieter interludes too. I have enjoyed being on the hill both for work and play. I have been working with clients from Glenmore Lodge and Scotch on the Rocks Guiding, as well as guiding private On High Hills clients. I've managed some climbing in the Cairngorms as well, and some ski-touring too. We're currently into a more optimistic spell of weather, with some good snowfalls and colder temperatures. Fingers crossed for this to continue!
