Winter Skills Day 2
We had a long look at the weather forecast yesterday and decided that the east may be better so we headed over to the Cairngorms for some more winter skills and a mountain day. We were blessed with light (ish) winds and some blue skies. The snow was perfect and we managed to study the snow pack in relation to avalanche prediction and we also covered snow anchors. The snow was a bit hard to go sliding around doing ice axe arresting but we covered the theory.
As soon as we had covered what we needed to cover we left the Ciest headwall and headed on to the ridge and then to the summit of Cairngorm. The hot chocolate in the ptarmigan was a perfect end to a perfect day.
