Winter Skills.... winter has returned!

The corries have held onto their snow conditions very well considering the weather we had over the weekend. The existing snow has shrunk slightly. The old snow was starting to refreeze this afternoon and we had some snow showers throughout the day. Gully lines in Sneachta still look complete.
I am working for Glenmore Lodge this week and today was day 1 of 5 of a winter skills course. Practising self arrest was just do able due to the icy surface so spent most of the day looking at good movement skills, cutting steps and crampon work.
