Avalanche Awareness

Today I was helping deliver an avalanche awareness day to Wessex mountaineering club for West Coast Mountain Guides.

Casper and myself based the day around the Be Avalanche Aware format and started the day in the pub introducing this model and starting the planning stage by looking at the avalanche and weather forecasts.

We then went for a walk in the snow towards the summit of Stob Ban, Glen Nevis to confirm our plan for a safe route by gathering information and to look at the snow pack for historical layering.

A lot of fresh snow today and hard work walking.
