Ski Touring 3:00:00  14.5 km (12:25 / km) +680m 10:03 / km
Got an offer of a day ski touring in the hills with some folk who knew what they were doing, so seemed a shame to turn it down... Plan was for 3 of the west Drumochter munros. Early start and looking great on the way there, but cloud just starting to come over as we headed off. Walked in 1.5km along the track with the skis before finding enough snow to get going. Then headed up onto A'Mharconaich. Steady climb, one quite steep section but nothing too tricky. By the time we summited the weather was closing in and we agreed a plan B if conditions didn't improve. Easy descent to the col towards Ben Udlamain, although light was already getting pretty flat. There were still a few glimmers of sun so we bashed on climbing up the fenceline, but visibility gradually decreased, snow flurries more persistent and wind getting up. Eventually decided on plan B to retrace our steps back to the col and descend by the gully. This turned out to be a bit interesting as we really couldn't see the lie of the land at all. Can't say I really enjoyed this section with my limited descending skills and general lack of confidence, but eventually we reached a broader spur with some nice snow and I was able to relax a bit. All good back from there.
Great to get out with DB and SH with their excellent experience and good for AB to be benefiting from it too. Out for 5h total.
