25th January 2017

Cold nights and warm days have given some days of late a very alpine feel. Conditions have been good for walking and mountaineering, but sadly there's a lack of snow for skiing. The forecast is looking good for the end of the month. Fingers crossed winter will hangs about a little longer this time.

Here are some photos from our mountaineering and winter skills teams who've been recently.

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!
