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

Fun, varied and useful Our guide Johnny took us out on a cold and wintry but not very snowy day for winter skills training. We found patches of snow to practice self-belay and ice axe arrest, and learnt winter navigation skills, with flora and fauna pointed out along the way. The day was very much tailored to our group's needs and abilities so everyone was challenged but not pushed too far. Really fun, educational and useful for future winter walks.
