Winter Skills Weekend
I have been joined by Ric, Ben, Iain, Simon, Gavin and Scott for a winter skills weekend here in Scotland. We used the uplift at the Nevis Range ski centre today to get up onto the snow quickly and spent the day looking at the use of axe and crampons, avalanche avoidance and looking after yourself in winter. It has been a nice day with some bright spells of sunshine but pretty windy with gusts of 70mph closing the gondola for our return journey. A great day out playing in the snow!
