Good winter conditions continue in the West Highlands with several weeks now of the holy grail of cold & clear conditions with plenty of snow in the mountains.  Our Alpine training team enjoyed 2 brilliant clear days out doing intro winter mountaineering training with Dave.

Despite some cool & wet West Coast weather, Micheal & Andy enjoyed an action packed weekend of alpine training which was quite challenging from both a physical & cerebral point of view!

To quote Andy, the weather was "invigorating!"
