First Winter Skills course of the season

A good couple of days with Tom looking at Scottish winter skills and winter navigation in a variety of weather and snow conditions.

On the first day we had good firm snow for cramponing and step cutting and as the snow softened we looked at ice axe arrests before climbing up to the summit of Cairngorm for lunch. After lunch we looked at digging emergency snow shelters before heading down as the winds increase to storm level.

In contrast to Saturday Sunday was wild all day with gale force winds and heavy snow which was perfect for learning about winter navigation and looking after yourself in a winter environment, see the video!
