Winter Skills Training Weekend 2013
15 - 17 Feb, 2013

As part of the February Weekend meet to Newtonmore five members undertook Winter Skills training lead by James, who was a brilliant instructor. Every one of them managed to pick up some new, possibly life-saving, skills over the two days. 

Here are some photos taken during the two days training.


Starting off with one of the main themes of the weekend, winter navigation.


Heading into Corie na Ciste, taking time to consider the other main theme of the weekend, avalanche awareness.


Not a blockbuster but click here for some video of ice axe braking on You Tube.


Heading over to Coire Laogh Mor.



On Sunday, heading for Coire an t-Sneachda, but they were not alone!


Further winter navigation heading into the coire.


Great views of the Fiacaill Ridge


It seemed like every man, and his dog (well at least one dog), was in the coire practicing.


They dug emergency snow holes


.. and then it was time to head back


But not before one last photograph
