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

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.
