Thanks to all the clients who've been out on courses over the last wee while. This winters conditions continue to be challenging, but we've still managed to deliver lots of courses, making the most of what we have. The weather forecast is looking wintry again, but it remains to be seen how long it will stay cold for. Here's hoping for at least a month! 

Here are some snaps from winter skills, intro winter walking and guided climbig days of late.

Winter courses

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
