A bit of a challenge! #winterskills #wintermountaineering #skitouring

22nd January 2020

The mixed bag of weather has continued through January so far, with cold spells followed by warmer weather. For the most part we've managed to make the most of conditions and have had winter skills, ski touring and guided climbing teams out. 

This week in particular has been a challenge. Fortunately it turns cold again at the weekend, so fingers crossed it stays cold for longer this time.

In many ways this is the nature of Scottish winter; unpredictable and unsettled. It makes the good days even better when you appreciate how hard won they are!

We have limited availability on February courses now, but there are some places on some of the winter skills and ski touring courses. Please get in touch if you would like some training.

Winter courses

Brilliant weekend with wonderful guides These guys have a really great set up here. All the course leaders were incredibly knowledgeable and had lots of advice. I always felt really secure, even trying new skills and terrain. I learned lots over the two day course and beautiful weather made for stunning views of the Cairngorms. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to learn about tackling the mountains in winter.
