Talisman winter mountaineering course - day one

The Talisman New Year winter mountaineering course began today with Charlie, Antonia, Eugene and Johanne enjoying the wintry weather on Cairngorm. We were nicely sheltered from the strong south westerly winds in Coire na Ciste which had some great old snow patches which were ideal for practising step kicking, step cutting and ice axe braking. Also lots of chat about the different types of crampons and axes and winter kit in general.

The snow showers continued off and on all day and the roads on the drive back into Aviemore were slushy and slippery!
