Italian Winter Intro

At the start of the week our Winter Intro course group headed over to Courmayeur for the first two days of the course, to take advantage of the better weather over there. They were hut based, and ascended a summit on the second day. In this photo, here they are in action traversing the slopes that had been hard packed by the winds the day before. They also practiced avalanche transceiver search patterns, and snow stability tests. There are just two spaces left on the last Winter Intro course of this winter, running 4 – 10 April.
