Scottish Mountain Rescue's Avalanche Essentials Course

 

2 Team members from AMRT joined MR teams from around Scotland on the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of January for an Avalanche Essentials course. The course was run by long running mountain rescue volunteers who have first hand experience of avalanche rescues in Scotland. The course included training with avalanche beacons, how to avoid avalanches on the hills and rescuing avalanche victims. Luckily the weather was excellent and the training was first class so great for the team! Who knew there were so many ways to dig a hole...
