Winter Skills

I have been joined by Al, Simon, Lee, Ian, Adam and Martin for a winter skills course in Scotland this weekend. Its fair to say it has been pretty tough weather today with the freezing level well above the summits, high winds and some very heavy rain! I got wetter today than I ca remember ever having got before - I am sure the memory will soon fade though :-) It was perfect conditions to show how wild the mountains can be and we also looked at axe and crampon skills and avalanche avoidance. However wild it gets its still way better than having been sat in the classroom all week!
