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.

Cairngorm Adventure Guides 2 day Winter Mountaineering Intro One of the most rewarding weekends I have had in the hills. The guy's were knowledgeable.. calm.. and controlled through all the types of weather the Cairngorm mountain threw at us. Learnt a lot, at a controlled pace... I.e. no information dump... I left feeling more confident about getting out on the hills... and getting of them in bad weather if need be. I'll use these guy's again no problem. Enjoy.
