I have been joined by repeat client John and his friends Gary & Nick and by John and James for a two day navigation and hill skills course here in Snowdonia. There was fresh snow down to Capel Curig this morning and we spent the day going no higher than 450m on the Gyders to avoid the heaviest snow. We also stayed off the footpaths all day to avoid the compressed snow that will be found on the busier paths. We spent the day looking at micro navigation skills and emergency procedures in the mountains and had a cracking day out. The snow came through in bursts of heavy showers and was still falling as I drove home. The mountains look beautiful as you can see in the photos.
