Excellent early season conditions #skitouring #winterclimbing #cairngorms

27th November 2019

November conditions have excellent and probably better than most of last season!

We've had lots of ski tours around Cairn Gorm and have enjoyed some fresh snow, sunrises, night skis and hanging out with friends. The winter climbing season has also begun and it's been nice to swing axes again. 

All in all a great start to the season.

The forecast from the rest of this week and into next week is for more cold and snowy conditions. Let's hope it stays that way.

Our courses are filling up with only a few spaces here and there. Doing some early season winter training definitely helps you make the most of winter.

Winter courses

Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm. There were 6 of us on the course (not inc Malcolm) and all completely new to ski touring and varying levels of ski experience. Malcolm adapted the course when required to suit all and took our course at a speed that was comfortable for everyone. The result being that we all had a fantastic time. The weather took a drastic turn for the worse with the heavy snow on the 2nd day and safety was put first cutting our time on the slope short. However we were probably all quite glad as we were definitely feeling the physical demands ski touring puts on your body by then lol. All in all, a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable course. We'd definitely recommend and would look at trying out the other courses on offer in the future. Thanks to the team, Barry, Ellie, Ant, Peter, our excellent guide Malcolm and event organiser Liam for a brilliant 2 days. Scott and I are properly knackered but loved sharing this experience with you all.Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm.
