17-02-10, Cairngorms - Winter Skills
Today was a glorious blue sky powder
day. Amazing! Day 3 of a winter skills course working for Snowdonia Adventures. We headed into Coire an t-Sneachda. Top ski car park was full by 8:30 so we walked up from the Ciste car park. We looked at Navigation, Avalanche awareness, Snow Pack Analysis and how to make Emergency Shelters. There is a weak poorly bonded powdery layer present in the mountains from yesterday morning. The powder is deep in places making walking arduous, although the path into t-Sneachda is firm.
