WGL and Fresh Snow

I woke this morning to sound of snow avalanching off my roof! About 4 inches of snow came down last night and it has been snowing sporadically through the day; this combined with near gale force winds has made it pretty grim to be up high! The forecast is to remain cold so take care if you are out and about in the hills - my advice would be to go for a coffee insted at the moment!

For the past few days I have been instructing on a WGL - Walking Group Leader training course based at Blue Peris Mountain Centre. This is an award for those who want to lead walking groups in non mountainous but remote upland and moorland terrain. You can find out more information on the award by visiting the MLTUK website.
