A good time was had by all on our Guides training out in the Alps, ten days in total of training, techniques and a ski induction. Fourteen days in a row on ski’s with a couple of days on Ice to finish us off at the end. I think my legs have only just about recovered!

An incredible three days of ski techniques training at Leysin to start the new year with.

Since returning to Scotland a few weeks ago I have been mainly busy working for Glenmore Lodge and it has been super WINDY, just about every day. I’ve had a good spread of work at the Lodge with some winter ML reassessments, tailor made GL winter safety courses, MIC training and some guided winter climbing.

I was out today working for myself (Elements) with Gian, he’s always wanted to climb Fiacaill Ridge, this is the winter grade II ridge that splits the two Northern Corries of Lochan and Sneachda. It was all going so well until three climbers got avalanched down in the Corrie and we decided to go and help.
