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

Five day Winter Skills course, fantastic experience! A group of five inexperienced mountain men had a great time learning new skills, including ice axe arrest, walking on flat ice, navigating steep snow slopes, avalanche awareness. We had two guides through the week, both highly professional and responsive to our goals and desires. Liam was so helpful in sorting out gear for members of the group lacking gaiters or a jacket, for example, and also organising other things, like lifts back to the youth hostel and prompt pick up off the mountain. I can't recommend CAG highly enough!
