Easter Winter Skills

The main roads are more or less clear now and there's plenty of snow for forest and mountain skiing. Walking and trail breaking are hard going away from the well trodden trails and it took us almost an hour to cover less than a kilometre!
I didn't take the camera as I wasn't expecting such good weather. I was expecting heavy snow and poor vis but by mid-day it had turned into another warm and sunny day. We looked at avalanche assessment, route choice and ice axe and crampon use.
Fi has been out with the last of our winter's MoD adventurous training course for the Royal Navy and has a full report here
