Avalanches in the UK

Avalanches do occur in the UK. Here is a picture I took of the remanant of an Avalanche in the Howgills Cumbria after the last thaw we had. Have a look at this article.
This could be a very valuable resource for all mountain users. The use of tranceivers in the UK is becoming more prevalent and should not be disregarded. There have been several accidents this year and last in England alone, along with fatalities.
If you are a serious winter mountaineer consider going on a transceiver course.
Stay safe and enjoy.
