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.

Brilliant winter skills course with Ben. Took a group of 8 of us up Cairn Gorm and challenged us. All of us gained lots of new skills to prepare us for adverse conditions and how to assess it before and during the hike. Highly recommend
