A wild start to our winter courses #winterskills #wintermountaineering #skitouring

16th December 2018

Yesterday was a wild, wild day with winds of over 100mph over the summits- not the ideal start for our winter courses.

We did attempt to venture out but progress was too difficult and the risks too high.

Todays weather made up for everything and our winter skills team, uni winter mountaineering duo and ski touring keen-bean all enjoyed some excellent conditions. 

Next week is looking a bit wild at times. Make sure you keep up to date with avalanche and weather forecasts if you're planning to head out.

Winter courses

This company were great. Dave took us out on the hills for 5 days and gave us a bespoke course on winter walking / climbing. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. He was an excellent teacher a really nice bloke and was incredibly patient with us all. Also, when we were planning the trip Liam was really great. We wanted help preparing ourselves for a specific goal and he was super helpful in explaining to us exactly what we needed to know/learn. It turns out we were being massively ambitious! But instead of just taking our money and sending us on our way Liam went out of his way to tailor a course to our needs. I can't recommend CAG enough.
