Lakes Skills Course 02/03-02-13

Great Winter Skills course this weekend, perfect cold sunny day on Saturday and more unsettled and warmer today but still good.  Thawing up high today but with cold due and some snow things could come good again!  Easy gullies will have been great on Saturday with bomber snow, reasonable snow cover still on Swirral Edge today...

 View towards Ullswater

 Good snow rake from Brown Cove up to the start of the difficulties on Swirral Edge today

Brown Cove today, better coverage in the Red Tarn area



Mark was also out on Saturday with Ivan and Leo for a Winter Walking day and had a great day out in perfect conditions...
