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

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
