Little country with big terrain

For a little country we have some awesome terrain.  The first thing you need to be able to do is find it.

Second day of our Mountaineering 4 Skiers course with the Avalanche Geeks and it was all about finding the terrain and exploiting the terrain to your advantage.

We could have just dropped in, but it would have been a shame to not use the new skills that Blair & Ali learnt yesterday.

A steep little entrance into An Cul Choire and down into the CC Chute provided an excellent descent, followed by an awesome skin (I actually quite enjoy skinning) back up to Stob an Chul-Choire before jumping into the lower part of Summit gully and then the homeward ski/skin.

Next course in now next winter - book fast because this is an awesome course :)
