A calmer day working in Glencoe.

A much nicer day today for the ACOL students on their winter walking skills training course. The wind has subsided and the snow stopped falling, which was a relief for everyone. The result of the storms is alot of fresh snow with unstable layers within it and evidence of cross loading on all aspects especially north and north east faces. Approaching climbs will be hard work for a while if you don't choose the right locations, but it was visibly colder as we descended this afternoon so fingers crossed the colder and stable conditions do materialise next week.
