Advanced Winter Skills

Challenging navigation conditions

Ice steps to near the pegging boulder
I was at Glenmore Lodge last week working on an Advanced Winter Skills week. During the week we had the full range of weather and snow conditions that gave us lots of opportunity to look at movement skills, navigation and avalanche awareness. Unfortunately the last day was so wild we did not make it onto the hill but spent it looking at ropework and emergency procedures in and around the Lodge.
At the weekend I was then again working at Glenmore Lodge on the M C of S University winter skills weekend. It was quite wild on Saturday but unfortunately on Sunday I did not make it to work as I came down with this sickness bug that has been going around. So much for some time off and a chance to get out and play this week!
I am back at Glenmore Lodge this coming week so fingers crossed for more wintery weather!
