Today in Coire Cas I was running a winter skills intro for the instructors of Hindleap Warren outdoor centre. We had ideal weather and conditions for teaching Scottish winter skills with lots of hard icy snow for step cutting, ice axe braking and cramponing.
We also had good periods of white out, cornices, strong gusty winds, lot's of spindrift, windslab, sastruga and even breakable crust to talk about. Goggles were useful too...
Fi went for a wander into Coire an t-Sneachda and climbed up Aladdin's Couloir which was in reasonable condition.
