2017 off to a flying start! #winterskills #cairngorms

4th January 2017

It's been a mixed start to winter this season with promising cold spells followed by unseasonably warm weather. Conditions have been building and improving in the mountains fortunatelty, and we've had a number of teams out enjoying themselves.

After a thaw/ freeze yesterday the snow is really firm underfoot, creating good conditions for our two winter skills, two winter climbing and winter walking week courses who are out.

Most teams have been in and around the northern corries of the Cairngorms, but Ross and hill walking team ascended Ben Nevis today.

Here are a few photos of the teams and how conditions look.

Great few days winter skills training We organised three days winter skills training with a private guide in mid December. For the 5 of us this worked out really well and we had a fantastic few days in the mountains. We are all summer walkers so it was certainly a challenge in the deep snow and poor visibility. Liam was helpful throughout the booking process and met us with a warm welcome and Jon our guide was knowledgeable and helpful throughout. Would thoroughly recommend these guys to look after you in the mountains. Will be booking again for this year.
