Approaching the An Casteal summit ridge.

On Saturday, 18 members and guests enjoyed lots of snow on walks and ski- tours (climbing was out due to high avalanche risk and inaccessible roads, downhill skiing out due to the latter).
An Caisteal was summited on foot and a small group hung about on the summit ridge to have a play on the towers and short gullies; Beinn Chuirn by ski; Eas Anie visited by thwarted climbers; and a wee walk near the Nevis Range with no hill gear by the thwarted down-hill skiers.
A splendid Burns supper was enjoyed with various members contributing poems, dance and song. Sunday's weather was not tempting enough (dreich!) for any longer forays into the hills.
