Four years ago lost friends organised a ski trip - Burns supper combo, and this tradition has been kept going each year since in their memory.


This year shall be no different. Haggis shall be made from scratch (both meat and veggie options) and dragged into the mountains (Neil and I are in complete agreement that the stuff you can buy here just isn't very good...). Whisky shall be consumed and good times shall be had!


In keeping with the spirits of both Neil and Steph, this trip will be as inclusive as possible. However, our destination (Brew hut) is quite the trek. The terrain is not very technical; you do not need to be a strong skier. However, this would not be a good time to try out skis for the first time. If you are new to skiing you should test it out at the Zoa trip, and intro to back country. So long as you are prepared to grunt all day we'll make sure everyone gets there (relatively) happily. If skiing isn't for you, snowshoes are also an option. The hut is beautifully warm and fits about 20 people.


We shall also have a mini Ceilidh. No experience required but coming along to the Ceilidh on the 11th is highly recommended!
