Winter skills in Glencoe

Today, Dave and I were out with a group from West Highland college looking to fill in some skills gaps from before Christmas. We need to spend some time in crampons and continue looking at our planning and decision-making processes using the 'Be Avalanche Aware' model. We decided on Buachaille Etive Beag and spent the day getting the millage under their belts and discussing all of the information that was there for us to see with regards to snow pack etc. The sun shone all day and it was glorious! I could show you tons of pictures, but here is just a few.
