Winter draws to a close #winterskills #skitouring #scottishskitouring

24th March 2019

It was always going to return, wasn't it! Looking over the photos from the last few weeks it has been a good month. We've had plenty of winter skills, ski touring and climbing teams out making the most of the late season conditions. Being flexible has been key, as well as keeping an open and honest dialogue with people who are coming on our courses. It's been great to hear people have still  enjoyed themselves and learned lots on our cousres.

There's no doubt that the warm spell in February has limited options and has made the snow pack more vunerable. Nonetheless, it's good to have made the most of it and still to have something to go at for another week or so.

Another observation of the photos this season is orange and red were the jacket colours of choice!

Fun, varied and useful Our guide Johnny took us out on a cold and wintry but not very snowy day for winter skills training. We found patches of snow to practice self-belay and ice axe arrest, and learnt winter navigation skills, with flora and fauna pointed out along the way. The day was very much tailored to our group's needs and abilities so everyone was challenged but not pushed too far. Really fun, educational and useful for future winter walks.
