Ski visit to Ben Lawers area.

Sun and snow Ben Lawers area

My efforts at Beith Golf Club put me in the notion for a little tour so put the skis in the car and went off up to Ben Lawers, handn't intended going that far but the snow further south was suprisingly scarce.
Ben Lawers used to be one of my regular outings early in the season to help get my ski legs, not the hill itself but the easy corrie to the NW.
There used to be a Scottish Ski Club hut near the top of the corrie but I discovered today that's away now. The hut veranda had a bench seat and was handy for a bit of shelter during lunch, now its a case of making do with crouching behind a big rock or a dip in the snow.
I was anticipating some great skiing on the way back down but it was just too hard for my skill level, all icy or windblown ripples I just couldn't get a decent turn in without falling on my bum but despite the sore bum it was nice to get up there on such a great day.

Snow was great ski was terrible, what skill I had from 10years ago has departed.
It was a great day though.
I like the frosty weather, not so much the ice and snow though.
