Typical Snowholing course layout
Before we set off on day one, we will spend time assessing the weather, snow and avalanche conditions, in order to learn about safe route planning and detecting potential avalanche terrain, and planning a journey.
Once we have checked all of the kit, we set off into the mountains to a site which would have accumulate enough snow for us to dig our snow shelters/snow holes and our accommodation for the evening.
In the evening, we will settle in for a cosy evening of cooking and admiring view, before nodding and snuggling up in our sleeping bags.
In the morning we will have breakfast with fantastic view, before we set back off to civilisation again.
The snowholing course location tends to be dictated to us by the weather, so we stay flexible and will either snowhole in the West Highlands or the Cairngorms.
