Lots of snow and lots of happy clients

In fairness the weather has been mixed, but it's the good days you always remember. A few days last week and on Saturday were as good as it gets; with deep snow to low levels, blue skies and sunshine. It's been great to see so many people out enjoying themselves and making the most of the weather.

As usual, we've had lots of winter skills and winter mountaineering / climbing teams out, all looking to develop the skills and confidence for getting out independently. 

We have limited availability during our February winter skills, ski touring and mountaineering courses, so please get in touch if you'd like to join a course.

If you're heading out don't forget to look at the avalanche forecasts and do your planning to make sure you have a great day.

Winter courses

I booked onto this course looking to build on my spring to autumn hillwalking experiences and to provide me with some training to extend my hillwalking into the winter season. Those on the course were of mixed ability and experience and all were made to feel welcome. The guidance and instruction given was clear and concise and the experiences on the hills developed navigation, ice-axe and crampon skills. (some in really brutal weather)The avalanche awareness instruction was fascinating as were the tools (apps) that are available to support your expedition planning. Liam welcomed the course which was then delivered by Ian and Kevin who equipped us with their expertise and local knowledge. Time constraints meant I could only attend 3 out of the 5 days but I am already looking for an opportunity to return to the snowy Cairngorms.
