Winter Skills on some Bluebird days!

Today and on Wednesday I was working with students on the Adventure Tourism Management Degree at West Highland College. We had a few aims- firstly to get the students some basic Winter Skills training but they were also interested in the different coaching styles we use for these sessions. We also covered a bit bout risk assessment in relation to the Winter mountain environment.
A really rewarding couple of days, thanks to Nathan, Cormac and Gregor on Wednesday and to Louise-Ann, Richie, Shannon and Tom for today. A great effort from everyone and a really high level of winter skills shown in such a short time on the hill- well done everyone!

Also on the hill for us today were Steve and Hannah with a group from Sheffield University Mountaineering Club. Not a bad day to be out at all!
