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.

Cairngorm Adventure Guides 2 day Winter Mountaineering Intro One of the most rewarding weekends I have had in the hills. The guy's were knowledgeable.. calm.. and controlled through all the types of weather the Cairngorm mountain threw at us. Learnt a lot, at a controlled pace... I.e. no information dump... I left feeling more confident about getting out on the hills... and getting of them in bad weather if need be. I'll use these guy's again no problem. Enjoy.
