Talisman mountaineering course day 2

I went in today with Ron's Talisman Mountaineering Course to a very busy Coire an t-Sneachda with the conditions underfoot being decidedly slippery!
Bob, Maz, Mark, Steve and I went over to the moraine ridge to dig emergency shelters, to consider the effects of the wind on the snow and the drifting on the more sheltered slopes and to practice the techniques that Ron had shown the guys the day before.
The corrie was busy with many groups and climbers and what looked a rescue team training exercise on Aladdin's Couloir.
