By Derek Knox.  While the main party went to Corrour a splinter group decided to park at Laggan Dam (had to dig our way into the carpark)and head up from Roughburn through the forest.

The snow was about 12 inches deep on the forest trail and, with the snow covered trees, had an Alpine feel to it.

The target destination was Beinn a’ Chaorainn or as much of it as time would allow (an attempt to get to Fersit earlier had to be abandoned due to deep snow on the road).

We lunched just inside the forest out of the wind and then headed up Beinn a’ Chaorainn.

It was decided to stop just above the outcrop Meall Clachaig and ski down from there. Fun was had by all negotiating the varied snow conditions as we made our way back to the road.
