After besting the worst of the British weather in London a few weeks ago our team still felt that they just hadn’t seen quite enough snow yet. So when the opportunity to carry out work on Hemel Hempstead’s Snow Centre appeared, we couldn’t wait to get stuck in. Luckily though our team of abseilers wrapped up warm for this one!
The action came thick and fast on the slopes, and our team were busy too – working hard high above to remove frozen ice from the centre’s steel roof supports. In order to get the job done our specialists had to employ a rope access technique which enables them to horizontally traverse out to the problem area and carry out works called aid-climbing.
Needless to say, by the time boots hit the snow everyone was more than ready for a nice cup of tea and a chance to get warm. Mission accomplished.
