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

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
