scotland2015The Team's winter training involved looking at personal skills such as avalanche awareness, use of avalanche transceivers, crampon use, self-arrest using an ice-axe. We also experimented using snow-shoes, which was enlightening. Following on from this Team members experimented with snow bollards, bucket seats and ice axe belays.

On the second day, we put these skills into practice near the Spittal of Glenshee, with a scenario which required Team members to back rope a loaded stretcher a 300m slope with a 60m rope!
