The team having fun on the snow

Nice afternoon 
Good snow cover above 900m
After a small blip in our cold, snowy winter it was back to normal service today. Colder conditions with a freezing level down to 800m. We had a fabulous blue skies day too. Caroline, Mark, Anne & Graham were out with me on a 1 day Navigation Course in the Northern Cairngorms. Caroline is embarking on her Summer Mountain Leader Award this Spring.  Before she starts her ML training course she was keen to get a day of navigation coaching beforehand. Husband and friends came along to learn some vital skills too. We hoped for some cloud cover on the plateau to make the navigation more realistic, unfortunately it was clear views virtually all day! What a bummer!  We also got some winter axe and crampons experience into the course. A fantastic day to be out.  Winter returns with more cold weather and snow through next week.
