A wild weekend but smiles all round. #winterskills

15th January 2018

We had some pretty ferocious winds this weekend in the Cairngorms but much fun was had despite the weather! Here are some pictures from our Winter climbing and winter skills courses over the weekend. 

It's looking like there's going to be quite a bit more snow falling over the next few days, so the conditions will be improving for skiing. We still have a limited number of places left on our Intro to ski touring course on 27th January, so please get in touch if you'd like to know more or to book.

Winter courses

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
