Skied the the top of Braveheart tow, climbed up and then skied Easy Gulley for the first time this season. Climbed a line pointing to the summit, which I bagged as another Munro. Hiked to Aonach Beg and bag by a bit of Goose and the long walk under the cable car. Some Ben Nevis routes look complete, as far down as I could see.

Skiined up the goose from T4, then over Aonach Mor plateau and onwards to Aonach Beag. Skied a wide bowl to the right of spikes gulley - then yo-yo'ed a traverse via the various back corries back to foot of the braveheart chair.

Hiked out from Braveheart via winger wall (took about an hour) for one last ski down warrens.

Aonoch Mor summit. From summit tow Nevis Range.

Not the longest tour we have ever done but possibly the most pointless.
:: Weather Conditions
Cloud, whiteout, fresh to strong cold dry Easterly. Very occasional view of lower mountains having a better time of it.
Fell for the bait of a good view but it never really materialised.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Surprisingly good cover, but really crusty. Elsewhere really thin with every rock showing.
