Glencoe Ski Centre

Today I was out with Vicky and Susan who are both on a 2 day Winter Skills course. We headed up along the chair lift and found some great patches of snow to teach movement and using the boot as a tool, we looked at uses of the axe and how to self arrest, step cutting and route choice and we also had a good look at avalanche awareness. The weather was quite fierce up there with high winds and transportation of snow quite evident. As we were getting higher the snow pack was firmer and fresh snow was getting deposited on top.
