Day two - guiding a group off piste

Today was the day that my group had planned the route for and subsequently got to guide the others on. We had decided on doing a run down from a peak called Knödelkopf, which did mean about a 30min hike up and on top we had a navigation exercise before heading down and I got to lead the group for a bit. I managed to get a nice pattern in on the first steep where we had some nice light snow. Which for us as a group that had planned the route were very happy with! The afternoon was again spent studying a snowprofile but a bit more extensive this time. The theoretical part today covered the snowprofile we Sid and then again more about different types of avalanches. There's a lot of information coming in together with quite physical days so early nights and early mornings every day with little time for anything else.
