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.

Winter courses

Brilliant winter skills course led by Emma. The course felt personal to our ambitions and goals. Emma tailored every aspect of the weekend to give us the best training we could want. Emma’s knowledge and experience was evident and allowed us to feel confident in every decision and exercise we conducted. Would recommend this company for anyone who wants to learn winter skills in a safe and controlled manner this was worth every penny
