Snow and cornices continuing to build!

Another day of private guiding with Ed, James, Russ and Ben. Even more snow today with tiring trail breaking up to Ciste Mhearad and Cnap Coire na Spreidhe.
We had a look at winter navigation, mountaineering skills, ropework, avalanche assessment and winter snow shelters.

Even managed to set of a small cornice triggered avalanche when abseiling off a big soft snow bollard which provided an excellent teaching opportunity!

For skiers there's now plenty of newly pisted snow on the upper Ptarmigan area and on the tow track and the Ciste Gully is filling in :-)
