Sun, shades, snow and sastruga

Stunning weather and snow conditions for Vish and Mike on day one of our Easter Winter Skills and Snowhole Expedition.
As well as the usual winter kit, sun glasses and sunblock are pretty well essential to avoid sunburn and snow blindness
It was bitterly cold, sunny and calm as we looked at basic winter skills, snow climbing techniques, avalanche assessment, probing and emergency snow-shelter construction.
Lot's of really interesting eroded snow sculptures, cornices and giant sastruga and a multiple layered snow pack that has deeply buried weaknesses under the firm slab!
