Stunning in the sun

Day 1 of a Winter Mountain Leader Assessment in the Cairngorms working for Glenmore Lodge today and the weather was immaculate! Candidates were demonstrating the simple skills that might be necessary to take a group on a winter mountain journey.
 Coire Laogh Mor
 Do you know your hoar from your rime?
 Step cutting in ice snow beneath soft powder
 Self arrest with a view
 The other way round
 More turning
 The best place to observe from?
 More steps
 Spray of snow
 Heading out
 Happy skier
Too nice, normal service will soon be resumed!
