“High winds and snow with poor visibility forced us to come off route. We tried to get back to the ski centre but ran out of light as we were slowed down traversing the Avon above the Loch. We decided safer to go to hut. Thank you MBA, the hut was perfect and saved us a dangerous scramble in the dark and bitter wind”
