Nottingham University MPS winter skills

I was out today with the Talisman Activities Nottingham University Munro Pineapple Society winter skills group - Ellen, Claire, Sinead, Rosie and Reuben.
We walked into Coire an t-Sneachda where we got some views into the corrie before the low cloud hid everything away. There was some good snow to use for practising step kicking and cutting before we walked over to the moraine ridge. I was surprised that there wasn't more snow but the snow that was that gave us a lot to look at and talk about with all the different layers that we could see. We found a good spot to try out the crampons then walked back to Coire Cas for some ice axe braking. The fresh snow meant it wasn't really that slippy until the folk sliding got a bit of help from Reuben as he towed them down the slope.
