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

Excellent couple days of private guiding (saved our trip) Chris and I spent to days with Rory from Cairngorm Adventure Guides. Rory was fantastic. He manage to maximize the amount we learned, tailored his instruction to our levels of expertise, and adapted the whole trip on the fly to the weather conditions. Without the help the trip would have been a total write-off. We'd come up to Aviemore the previous year and been blown off the mountain by 80 MPH winds. This year, we had 100 mph winds (AGAIN!) with the added obstacle warm weather melting almost all the climbable gullies. Fortunately... we had a guide! Rory completely saved the trip. One the first day - with winds making the mountains unclimbable - we went to sheltered crag nearby and got in a full day of climbing and instruction. The second day we only had the warm weather to contend with, but Rory plan a great day - up the one gully that was still climbable, down into another valley and then a multi-pitch climb back up to Cairngorm Mt. So in essence - (1) Rory was great, and (2) you can't rely on Scottish weather, so hiring a local guide company like Cairngorm Adventure Guides is a very good idea. Without the local expertise our trip would have been a total waste; instead we had a great weekend a learned a huge amount about efficiently and safe climbing.
