Richard and I took a walk up into Coire an Laoigh on Beinn Eighe today, hoping to revisit some winter skills and get some winter mountain time. Deep snow trail breaking and increasingly snowy windy weather did slow us down a bit so we went for a shortish (but hard work!) walk up the ridge on the South of the Coire until prudence and time turned us back towards the road. More of a route choice, decision making sort of day with lots of snow being blown in, rapidly filling in the post holes of our tracks. A very wintery day!
