CPD in the West Highlands

 

For the past week I’ve been up in Scotland on the west coast for 6 days of CPD training on looking after groups in the harsh Scottish winter environment. It’s been a great but tough week, with winds gusting to 80mph, blizzards, whiteouts, high freezing levels and an often ‘High’ avalanche risk to deal with.

Its really good to learn new skills, reaffirm some old ones, share experiences, meet new people and see how other instructors deliver winter skills training. Here’s some pics from the week:
