Yep.... they were pretty impressive - just hope they continue to ski in the future...
There is some good terrain - especially when west wall is open... obviously nothing compared to other areas in the world...
When there is lots of snow i go to Cairngorm as its worth the 2 hour drive... if not i go to lecht, one hour drive and free skiing!!!

seems a good trip... its beautiful up there... Aviemore reminds me of Banff Canada...

almost makes me homesick - till i look out the window here in Tahoe...
How did you end up over there???
Never been to Glen coe or Nevis - not worth the drive...
