5 August
Rainbow Snow Skills Easy


We will proceed to Rainbow Skifield and will give training on some basics of handling an iceaxe and wearing crampons. Also moving confidently and safely on snow; ascending and descending steeper slopes and self arrest. If the team proves keen and competent then an ascent of nearby Peanter Peak can be attempted. In any case a good day out and training for future snow trips. Snow gear can be borrowed from the club on a first come first served basis but priority will be given to club members.
