Winter ML Assessment

Not many people know but the Scottish Qualifications Authority mapped the MTS Winter ML a few years ago and declared it at the same level as an Ordinary Degree. This week I'm assessing candidates for the Award at Glenmore Lodge. Over the last 2 days we have been looking at snow craft, the demonstration of good basic winter skills in appropriate venues, some leadership scenarios and personal movement on steep ground. Off tomorrow for a 2 night Cairngorm mini break (aka a snowholing expedition).
Plenty of climbers out today though things were a little black in Coire an t Sneachda thy looked whiter at first in Lochan.
