Cairngorm

With things improving with my hip and my fitness I decided to try and test out skiing in Scotland. Having heard such great things about the conditions and excited to ski (on snow) in Scotland for the first time in 7 years I drove up to Cairngorm with my dad for a weekend on the snow.

We drove up very early on the Saturday morning and arrived at Cairngorm to strong winds, fog and heavy snow. Not ideal! At the ticket office the lady told us the snow was icy, visibility was patchy, the winds were very strong and if the wind got any stronger the lifts would close… Up we went to the top.

At the top we realised that the lady in the ticket office wasn’t lying! It was freezing and we couldn’t see a thing! Maybe that was a good thing as it encouraged me to go slowly and take things easy. I did as the physios asked and just did ski drills at slow speeds to get the feeling back and practice the basic position.

On the Sunday, we went back up for more and the conditions were pretty similar to the Saturday. I did a load more drills then drove back down to Glasgow. We left just in time as the weather came in on the roads home.

Sadly the next few days my hip really tightened up and was pretty sore lifting weights.  Back to the rehab and treatment table.
