16-02-14, Coire an t-Sneachda, Cairngorms - Winter Mountaineering Skills

Some more Winter Mountaineering Skills today. A fabulous day, great views and light winds. The team revisited some essential winter skills, navigation and ice axe arrest, before ascending some steeper ground using the rope to protect themselves along the way. Plenty of folk on Fiaciall ridge, some teams on Fiaciall Buttress, Aladdin's Buttress and the Mess of Pottage, slopes looked very loaded though, especially goat track side. Very busy ski centre this morning, top car park full by 8:30, train not quite open because of too much drifted snow, large queues on the tows.
