Scottish Winter Skills

I am back in Scotland now for 2 weeks and have been joined for this weekend by Adam, Declan, Paul, Colin, John and Mike for a winter skills weekend. We headed to Aonach Mor for our first day looking at axe and crampon skills as well as avalanche avoidance. The snow pack has softened over the last 2 days with a rise in temperatures whilst the buttresses are all black. Some fresh snow and a re-freeze would be nice but conditions are ideal for winter skills.
