Last week I did the first course on the Swedish guide scheme. It was an avalanche course run by European Avalanche School in La Grave. Day after day we went out among the mountains looking at snow crystals, digging snow pits and talking about how to move among the mountains. It was great to meet the whole group that are going to rock n roll together for the next three years or so and to finally get on with the courses. There will be lots of updates on this kind of stuff in the future!
