Winter Mountain Leader Training

The First Winter Mountain Leader training of the year and a wild one it has been. They are off on expedition tomorrow night with Pete Hill the course provider. The wind looks to be in their favour, however the temperatures not so much. Potentially a wet night in a snowhole for them, all good training.
We have been exploring different winter skills techniques, security on steep ground and generally consolidating skills.

Step cutting on the ridge up into Coire Laogh Mhor

Donning the goggles for a windy blasting in coire and T-Sneachda. Still all smiling.

Avalanche debris from cornice colapse, between the Mess of Potage and Aladdins buttress. A very white corrie, wet wind slab, conditions looking pretty tricky. We stuck to the moraine for some digging and tranceiver skills.
