Icy and Hard but Great Day at Glencoe

Not too eventful a day and did a bit of photography. SAIS course on the mountain and as always at Glencoe Mountain, even if the skiing isn't great the craic is good.

Great day up at Glencoe today but not so much of the off piste or side of the hill fun and games as it had set up hard overnight. Yesterday I had a good ski with Mark Diggins and George Reid of the SAIS showing them around the mountain and giving them a flavour of the people and what makes the mountain tick. Nice that all three of us are ambassadors for UK BCA/Dynafit importer Anatom and we all had our BCA packs and Dynafit kit on and loads of folks had questions about the kit.  Today the off piste course for boarders and skiers ran well, and Paul Moores was also on hand to help out. We had quite a few beers at Clachaig last night with these guys and caught up with many old climbing buddies including Pete Long who is recovering from serious head injury. Great night and Fiona really enjoyed the craic as did Esther my daughter.
