Winter Skills - 15th Dec

15th December 2017

Beginning of our winter courses

Today was the start of our 2017/18 winter programme and it was great to have Mark & team out in proper Scottish conditions; poor visibility, freezing cold and hard work in the deep snow!

The team made their way into the flat ice in Coire an-t Sneachda.

More of the same tomorrow for Mark and team, as well as our various other groups who are out.

Winter courses

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
