This was long due for me. I joined an avalanche awareness course, which was organised by the Chris Walker Memorial Trust. What a great course. In the morning we had a look at the theory of avalanches and some interesting statistics. in the afternoon we headed up to Coire an Lochain and made a large snow pit to look at different layers. Even considering the mild conditions we had in the last few days with a lot of the snow gone we still managed to find 4 layers in that old snow pack.
