We did a two day winter mountain skills course in the Cairngorms, learning avalanche awareness, safe use of crampons and an ice axe. It was really interesting to highlight the dangers of fresh or unstable snow, and how it can be traversed safely or when to call it and head back down off the mountain. Ice axe self arrest was fun too, sliding down the mountain and stopping yourself! The instructors, Mollie and Stevie were great and very knowledgeable. Great weekend.. Thanks!
