Backflip into Easy Gully

What a ski season it continues to be in Scotland! Last weekend we hit up Nevis Range ski centre for Easter Sunday and after many years of scoping it and waiting for the snow conditions to be right (and have a photographer on site) Gavin MacKay threw a backflip into Easy Gully which is not far to the west of the summit tow.

 

While the photo captures the action it doesn't do justice to how steep or narrow it is. Unfortunately there were a few tracks down it and every angle showed them.

 

A bonus for me was this shot appearing in the Daily Mail today.

 

Looks like this season won't end till June so here's to plenty more days with good snow and blue skies.
