Winter Skills Weekend in the sunshine

When I woke up this morning I could hear rain hammering against the window, it was still very dark but the prospects of another sunny day looked unlikely. Having looked at the weather and avalanche forecasts together the team and I decided that Glen Coe offered the best bet and so we went up Buachaille Etive Beag. There was fresh snow on the road through the Coe and the whole mountain had a nice fresh layer of powder. We used the skills that we had covered yesterday to complete our journey to the summit and along the way refreshed our memories on the key skills including avalanche avoidance. We had some stunning panoramic views and the temperature dropped as the day went on, the skies were once again blue and the sun was shining. A great weekend. There are several weakly bonded layers within some fairly significant areas of windslab across the mountains at the moment and so care is required. Be sure to visit the SAIS website and take care.
