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

Terrific, attentive and caring team with great customer service I'm writing a review in March 2020 in the midst of the covid19. I had booked a course right at the time that the pandemic was getting worse and unfortunately had to cancel my trip with Cairngorms Adventure Guides. The Caringorms team were very helpful and accommodating at this time when so many other tour/transport companies were being difficult about their T&Cs. I can't thank them enough of how understanding they were to my particular situation. The customer service team were thoughtful and attentive and this can only reflect that their guides/teachers and company as a whole share the same ethos. I've since then changed my booking for February 2021 and cannot wait to attend!
