January 2015

A New Year and some great winter conditions covered most of Scotland. The Skiing was good over Christmas and New Year. The climbing was a bit buried but it soon improved. I worked on a Mountain Rescue Scotland, Avalanche Rescue Course up on the Aonach Mor Ski Area. A week-end training team members on the subtleties on avalanche rescue. We actually had some good weather for the course which makes a change, it usually just blows a gale.




I also had a few days wondering about the hills in the snow with various groups here is Alan and his girlfriend on Buchaille Etive Beag on an atmospheric and very snow day.



And of course a little climbing on some great early season Ice here a route in the Auch Glen, definitely a bit off the beaten track.


So that was January, hopefully February will keep up the good work. Hope to see you out there.
