Snowshoes are brilliant!

We went up into the hills to do a bit of sledging today: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151402712599385&l=2294912716913344870

There were some great drifts but I also got to try out my snowshoes…and they were brilliant!! It’s like having your own personal tanks on your feet, you can go anywhere. I could have walked round in them all day.

The boys did a bit of sledging down a shallow slope, then decided they would sledge of an overhang and down something much steeper – see the videos. Luckily no bones were broken.

Getting back over the ledge was a bit of an ice climbing challenge.

I also found a rabbit hole that had been cleared out and recently visited by a few rabbits and a fox or small dog judging by the prints in the snow.

James has this snow scooter thing…it was £20 but worth every penny because you can slide on it on even relatively small patches of snow.
