Avalanche awareness in the Scottish hills.

Feb 26, 2015

On the 13th Feb I attended the annual Avalanche workshop in memorial of Chris Walker, curtesy of the Chris Walker Trust. It was a good day with Graeme from Lochaber SAIS chatting through current thinking on avalanche awareness and avoidance.

Here we are digging a pit to look at the snow profile and grains within the pack.. note, its not too jump up and down on it and try and make decisions from such an exercise!
