Winter skills galore

17th December 2017

This weekend we've had four winter skills teams and a winter mountainnering duo out (many continuing into next week too). Yesterday was tough going in deep fresh snow and this morning was tough in the thaw (rain). Nonethless, the teams have covered lots of ground and skills and even appear to be enjoying themselves!

Winter courses

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.
