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

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.
