Winter Skills Weekend

I have been joined for the weekend by Graham, Gavin, Ian, Richard, Andrew and Steve for a winter skills course. It has been another lovely day here in the Highlands and we enjoyed some lovely views from Aonach Mor. The temperature was well below freezing and the skiiers were enjoying some fresh snow. We looked at kicking steps, cutting steps, use of crampons, ice axe arrest, avalanche avoidance and enjoyed lunch in the snow shelter my group built on Thursday. Another great day out.
