Winter Skills

Today I was out working for the EICA:Ratho on a winter skills day. Tom, Kevin and Ailsa are all pretty new to the winter game and wnated the chance to get their teeth into it. We were up in the corie cas area looking at using the boot, Cramponing and ice axe work. All had a good day in nice but windy weather.

There was alot of snow being moved around today on a very strong southerly wind. As we were leaving the bad weather that was forecast was moving in quickly. There was alot of heavy snow falling in the Drummochter Pass on the way back to Edinburgh, so much so that the road markings had been covered. Take care if heading and check the forecasts.
