OFF-PISTE PAS­SION

Countryfile Magazine - - Month In The Country -

Weary of busy slopes, Scot­land’s more in­trepid skiers are in­creas­ingly head­ing off-piste . “There’s no sug­ar­coat­ing it – it is dan­ger­ous,” ad­mits pho­tog­ra­pher Brodie Hood. “But the Scot­tish back­coun­try of­fers peace, quiet and un­touched snow; a true wilder­ness ex­pe­ri­ence and some of the best days I have ever had.” Here, Brodie cap­tures Kenny Big­gin – an ex­pert in ski­ing back­coun­try routes – set­ting off down the frozen Grotto Rush gully on Aonach Mór, two miles north-east of Ben Ne­vis. Off-piste ski­ing cour­ses are avail­able at Glen­more Lodge, the Na­tional Out­door Train­ing Cen­tre in the Cairn­gorms Na­tional Park. glen­morelodge.org.uk
