It wasn’t in any way the weather of yesterday but we found what we were looking for with the Weekend Winter Skills Course today. Using the Nevis Range gondola to get up high on Aonach Mor we sought out some of the currently rare to find older snow which we could use to demonstrate and practice the use of the ice axe to check a slip or arrest a slide. As well as this we were able to take a practical look at just what creates instabilities within a snow pack and learn how we can plan our day to minimise the risk of triggering or being caught in an avalanche. Well done to all on the course and here’s to using your new found skills in getting out to some more amazing places!
