Blue Skies and Sunshine (winter skills & winter mountaineers)

7th January 2018

Lots and lots of people out enjoying the sunshine today and making the most of the last day of holidays.

Our busy winter continues with numerous winter skills and a couple of mountaineering teams out. The teams have had a good mix of weather this weekend with poor visibilty, windy and cold conditions yesterday and wall to wall sunshine today (can't imagine which they prefer).

There's good snow cover at the moment although care is needed for ski touring to avoid rocks, and there's a moderate avalanche risk on all aspects above 900m's for climbers and skiers to consider.

The coming week's forecast continues to look good and wintry.

Great few days winter skills training We organised three days winter skills training with a private guide in mid December. For the 5 of us this worked out really well and we had a fantastic few days in the mountains. We are all summer walkers so it was certainly a challenge in the deep snow and poor visibility. Liam was helpful throughout the booking process and met us with a warm welcome and Jon our guide was knowledgeable and helpful throughout. Would thoroughly recommend these guys to look after you in the mountains. Will be booking again for this year.
