Davey, Heather and I went to Glencoe Ski Centre today to let the chairlift take the strain. This got us up to the snowline very quickly for our day of revising winter skills. The snow was mostly firm and icey but there were some deep drifts of slabby snow on lee slopes. There were plenty of skiers around as we used the gound to look at kicking and cutting steps, walking in crampons and preventing slips and arresting slides. We then moved onto some steeper ground to build bucket seats, buried axe belays and snow bollards which we abseiled from.
Karl and his clients were in Glencoe on Stob Coire Nan Lochan reporting frozen turf, good snow and parties on Crest Route, Twisting, NC, Boomerang Arete, Forked Gully and of course Dorsal Arete.
