We kicked off an ML Training course yesterday here in Snowdonia with Heather, Lizzie, Colin, Awi, Tim and Pieter – the latter three having travelled over from Holland to do the course – impressive!

Yesterday we had some pretty wet weather and having introduced the course, looked at some weather forecasting and drunk as much teas as possible we spent the day looking at some of the navigation elements of the syllabus.

Today has been much brighter and after a bit of a session looking at the contents of a Mountain Leaders Rucksack and a bit more weather forecasting we headed up Y Garn and Foel Goch to enjoy a Quality Mountain Day. Along the way we increased knowledge of the environment, leadership skills, navigation and emergency scenarios before rounding the day off with a session on law.
