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

Fun, varied and useful Our guide Johnny took us out on a cold and wintry but not very snowy day for winter skills training. We found patches of snow to practice self-belay and ice axe arrest, and learnt winter navigation skills, with flora and fauna pointed out along the way. The day was very much tailored to our group's needs and abilities so everyone was challenged but not pushed too far. Really fun, educational and useful for future winter walks.
