A SUNNY SPRING SNOW DAY
It was a lovely sunny morning in The Cairngorms for a change. Still high winds on the summits but blue skies and sunshine made for a nice morning to be out on the hill. Laurie & I were in Coire Laoigh Mor today. Laurie starts his Winter Mountain Leader assessment tomorrow and he wanted to go over a few areas of the syllabus in final preparation. Some avalanche test pits, sliding with and without the ice axe and a few bits of rope work amongst other skills. Gill and her ski mountaineering group from The Lodge stopped by for a chat before venturing into the winds.
