This week the Swiss mountains are calling Girlguiding Ribble Valley Division, on their fun-filled snowy adventure at Kandersteg International Scout Centre. 

Leader Harriet keeps us updated on their trip.

We have all had a challenge today.  Blue and grey groups from Girlguiding Ribble Valley went on a mountain climb adventure, using lots of skills.  After a steep climb and learning how to use snow shoes, it was time to take in another extraordinary view and light a fire to make some tea.

The snow was very deep but everyone got very hot playing lots of games, and everyone enjoyed the avalanche training.  First aid training with limited kit was much enjoyed.  On the way down everyone slid down in style and the whole group did a fabulous job of keeping going and making it back to the chalet.
