With the higher hills in Scotland now sustaining snow cover, deep cover in places due the strong winds that accompanied the precipitation. This has been to the benefit of getting safer conditions for early back country skiing. Already, the enthusiasts of this pursuit have been out. For example, here is a back country skier touring around the mountains south of Glas Maol. Clearly a blue sky day in these photos but conditions can change fast, so this group of individuals really take the performance of the clothing and equipment seriously. When you are miles from home and the elements turn again you, then you need all the support you can get. Often the layering of the clothing is critical as the up hill climbs require the clothing to keep the body cool and allow moisture to escape, while an exposed plateau walk may produce a high wind chill and the need to keep warm. Not forgetting the flexibility of the clothing the activity of skiing requires. One way to ensure all these demanding features are met is to invest in made to measure clothing.
