Winter skills, Cairngorms
Updated: Apr 5, 2021
Today i was delivering winter skills to Kingswood staff on their staff week away.
Full on winter conditions in Coire an t Sceachda. With wind blowing in all directions and snow showers, visibility was poor. There was a lot of fresh snow in the gullies and on the buttresses.
We looked at walking in crampons, ice axe arrest and the ‘be avalanche aware’ model throughout the day.
