2/12/10 - Carn a Gheoidh
Today a group of team members headed out onto Carn a Gheoidh for a ski tour with some time being spent on snow anchors and navigation. A reasonable depth of soft unconsolidated snow covers the plateau area and touring conditions were variable. Localized cloud cover seemed to be the theme of the day, however we were afforded a nice sunset on returning into the ski area at the end of the day.

The group enjoyed a fine autumn's day with a visit to the top of MacDui where there were quite a few folk on the hill. Descent was made via carn a'Mhaim with ground orientation work being carried out, going by the forecast they picked the right day.
