Well the ski season is almost upon us proper for 2009. It's been frustrating with a few false starts but it looks like this week could be the week for colder temps and plenty of the white stuff.

The east has had some snow already and about 30 open days but for me west is best and things don't get going until the Nevis range opens. In anticipation of this milestone I've created a little panorama from my favourite spot on Aonach Mor overlooking Ben Nevis taken on perhaps my best days skiing in 2008.
