Winter Skills on Aonoch Mor

Today I was out with Lochaber College shadowing Bill Strachan (Scotch on the Rocks Guiding). The weather and skiing conditions were absolutely brilliant, however we weren't skiing today. We were looking at avalanche awareness, ice axe arresting and moving with crampons.

Bill describing avalanches, using hands.

Moving on steep ground.
"Just come over here guys its not dangerous"

Everyone and myself included learned a lot from the day and had a great time with Bill. Looking forward to tomorrow because I will be doing it all over again.
