Was up at Aonach Mor yesterday for the first time this season and the snow on the front of the hill was awful. It had obviously thawed and refrozen and was bulletproof even after the afternoon's sunshine. The Goose was a nightmare, I saw a few folk taking off their skis and walking across to cascade, which wasn't much better to be honest.
However, a great cheer went up when the 'Braveheart Open' sign was pushed into the snow at the Summit tow. Various drop-ins were available and the snow was lovely, probably the easiest entrance I've ever seen there.
Ventured over to Aonach Beag in the afternoon, plenty of ski tourers about and finished up with a run down Summit Gully which had been boilerplated in the shade, just in time to make the last lift out on Braveheart.
A great day out, Aonach Mor is just a wonderful place to ski.
