Today I was out with Nick who is up from London. The aim of the day was to make him comfortable about moving around a snowy mountain with and without crampons and also we practiced ice axe arrests in the nice soft powder. We started of in the Nid area and then followed the ridge up to the top lift and then carried onto the summit of Aonach Mor (1221m). From here we walked down along the chair. Many groups out doing winter skills/mountaineering courses, some climbers and lots of skiers and boarders. Loads of powder on the tops.
