Cairngorms ski weekend

A fair few miles were covered on skis as 14 skiers headed north at the weekend for the club's annual Scottish trip.

From the club's base just outside Braemar, there were tours on the surrounding Cairngorm mountains, including Glas Maol, Carn Liath and Morrone.

Biting winds and low cloud limited the scope for longer tours, but descents on snowy northern slopes more than made up for any temporary cold-based discomfort.

Thanks to Brian Smith for organising the weekend.
