Winter Skills - Aonach Mor

We were out on Aonach Mor today to try and get a mountain day in and to also cover some winter skills such as cutting steps in ascent and descent as well as the use of crampons. The forecast wasn't good with increasing winds and snow and by the time we got to the top ridge the wind was gusting 60-65 mph so we decided to call it a day and get back to the gondola before it shut with the winds.

The snow level is about 700m but as it's now snowing is coming down to about 500m with the freezing level at Fort Williams at about 1.5 degrees C.
