Today we headed out West for day three of our Mountain Ski Leader course. We took the risk and bought tickets that allowed us to access the top of Nevis Range giving us easy access to the back corries.
For most of the day the skiing was good over the back, spring like snow with only a small amount of heather / mud skiing to get back round to the lifts.
We covered lots today looking at belays, rope work, safeguarding steep slops and entires, steep skinning and change overs from skins to skis and vise versa on steep ground. We also looked at lots of group management issues with steep slopes and poor vis, all well catered for on Nevis Range!
