The temperature had risen slightly overnight, leading to a gentle thaw in Aviemore. The snow on Cairngorm was a touch icy to start with, but soon improved.

After a couple of runs, we met up with Vickie and Claire.

I didn’t fancy the walk to Cairngorm summit, so I left Dave, Vickie & Claire to make the trip, while I had a few easy runs.

Dave & Vickie split off to do some off piste trips while Claire and myself took a more leisurely time on the easier slopes. However, they did persuade me to go off piste, but from previous experiences I knew it would not be that easy and expected to fall a few times (which I did), but had a good trip anyway.

We had a great day, and finished off in Tesco’s trying to get some food from the rapidly emptying shelves. But did I hear Dave say “I’d prefer a milkshake to a beer”?!?
