What has been happening?
- Ski Patrol staff training at Cardrona Alpine resort – medical and chairlift evac.
- Pre winter Alpine cliff rescue training – getting used to the new Swiss search gizmo for finding transceivers from the helicopter, and the usual helicopter human longling rescue practice – done up at Treble Cone in 30cm of fresh, a meter in the gullies in the saddle basin!
Today, for a few hours, the Alpinism and Ski team were out developing ski legs fangin around some fresh( 10-15) at Cardies. The weather came and went – great test of the Oakley and Smith goggles, and neck gaiter in the wintery conditions – might have even got some vitamin D!! 🙂
Bring on winter ….. Yeah……
