I had a brilliant day on the Ben on Sunday skiing three of the gullies (apologies if I knocked any snow down onto you in the process), conditions were perfect with some lovely snow and small(ish) cornices. Have some reasonable photos but alas because I skied alone I have no action shots, if anyone by any chance took a picture or two I'd love to have them? I think the party of three in No2 Gully might have some?

Was a bit harsh, especially as it took him 2 attempts to construct his insult!

There really is no need for this.

In reply to Scomuir: I would even say it's a bit mild to say he's being a bit harsh. I'd say he's being a tool...

I'm glad someone made good use of the fresh powder, I climbed no 3 gully on Sunday and wished I'd brought my skis!

Bad Lovers! How did I know you'd show up on here bad mouthing me! Thanks for jumping to my defence everyone else but I'm not at all bothered by silly armchair comments, I had a great day and was just looking for some photos for memories. Amusing how many comments these things generate, this is almost on a par with the Dreadnought thread a few years back......

In reply to Chad123: Not been up the ben for 8 years in winter, but how hard is No2 gully to ski?

Skiing down a climbing up gully?? I feel a whole new dry tooling style bloodbath coming on. Hang on while I get a brew and make myself comfy.

In reply to Chad123: No2 Gully was in exceptional nick last weekend, ie no ice due to the thaw and tons of fresh powder which had blown into it, so apart from the cornice which I opted not to ski (but you could have if keen) the rest was great, side slip the narrows, then lovely jump turns in the wider section then a perfect open steep slope below that. I don't think you'd get it like this very often though, I think 3 and 4 are much more likely to be in skiing nick. No 3 had a huge cornice so gave it a miss and no 4 was busy and hacked up snow. No5 similarly is a bit narrow in places but was holding excellent snow most of the way down. Tower was the best of the bunch as scenic and plenty of room to turn all the way down. Probably the most serious though as the entrance is pretty exposed as is the traverse above tower scoop. I thought it was all pretty sociable actually, had great chats with everyone I met - favourite two quotes were "I prefer blue pistes" and "Lucky we're here to pick you up at the bottom" IF you like sklking steep, scenic stuff and have the mountaineering and skiing experience to keep it safe I can't think of a finer way to spend the day....
