19-02-10, Cairngorms - Winter Skills

Today we headed to Glen Feshie. Final day of a week long winter skills course working for Snowdonia Adventures. Consolidating experiences of the week, we ascended Carn Ban Mor and walked across the plateau. This morning the sun was out and it felt very hot, down to thermal layers while walking in. As we approached the summit plateau the clag came in and gave the team a chance to sample navigating in a white-out once more this week (see guys the Scottish winter isn't just blue skies and sun cream!). Lots of surface hoar still present and no wind.
