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

Winter Climbing 5 day course: Amazing experience This is my third time using Cairngorm adventure guides and I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Dave, our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, patient and a fantastic teacher. He really took the time to understand what we wanted from the course and each day was tailored to suit our goals and progress our skills. Liam (the owner) was lovely as always, responding promptly to emails, making sure we had everything we needed to have a fantastic week. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
