B.A.I.M.L professional development course

Here we have sally graham and philip on a beautiful january day above les Gets France looking at, some aspects of winter conditions

We picked some great rolling nordic terrain to journey through with some cracking views, and plenty of issues to talk about
we looked at many aspects of the existing syllibus but i would like to think we had a lovely time, we were also joined later on in the week by paul and stephen

bowled over by the day



it was all so interesting we had to look at the day in different ways, be it a close examination of the snow or through a lense.
but at the end of the tour we retired to a relaxing lunch
