Excellent conditions, at last! #winterskills #winterclimbing #skitouring

26th February 2020

After such a lean start to winter that was then followed by mixed cold and windy weather, it's very very good to have some excellent condtions.

At present ski touring conditions are excellent with a good coverage to lower levels and plenty of fresh snow to go at. We've had teams at all the usual haunts and have managed plenty of personal ski tours too.

Our winter skills courses continue to be very popular (which is excellent) and even when we've had wild and windy weather there has at least been good amounts of snow at lower altitude venues we've been able to use.

There have been a number of avalanches recently, so please make sure to check out the latest forecast and plan your day before heading out- https://www.sais.gov.uk/

If you fancy some winter skills training or joining us on our Winter Walking Week (https://www.cairngormadventureguides.co.uk/winter-courses/winter-walking-week) please get in touch.

Winter courses

This company were great. Dave took us out on the hills for 5 days and gave us a bespoke course on winter walking / climbing. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. He was an excellent teacher a really nice bloke and was incredibly patient with us all. Also, when we were planning the trip Liam was really great. We wanted help preparing ourselves for a specific goal and he was super helpful in explaining to us exactly what we needed to know/learn. It turns out we were being massively ambitious! But instead of just taking our money and sending us on our way Liam went out of his way to tailor a course to our needs. I can't recommend CAG enough.
