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

Absolutely loved the course! Our instructor Annie was very good and knowledgeable about all aspects of touring, she taught us all about the kit, what to pack in bag, avalanche training, planning of tour and lots more. The first day we toured to top of Cairngorm summit with some Ice on the way and managed to test ski crampons. The second day was probably one of the best experiences On skis when we reached the summit of Gael Charn and the view was unreal and the ski down was brilliant. Amazing week and recommend the course.
