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.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you. Rory was incredible! The most wonderful guide who gave us not only a brilliant weekend, but so much information and support. I was expecting a good weekend, but I wasn’t expecting it to be this good! Alongside that, all your support with our delayed flight was massively appreciated. Thank you again.
