Rest of the week...and today.

Its been a busy week with changeable conditions. Hill temperatures have hovered around freezing with Wednesday being the coldest -3 at 900m. Not a lot of new snow has fallen but hopefully that will change tonight and over the coming week.
Im working this weekend on a winter mountaineering course are Glenmore Lodge. We spent
today in the Ciste gully area looking at moving around on steep ground , snow anchors and basic
rope work. We just escaped off the hill before the stormy weather kicked in. There was lots of
snow being blown around, water courses and exposed turf were starting to re freeze, all good.
