February Half Term in the Cairngorms #winterskills #skitouring #winterclimbing #wintermountaineering

12th February 2018

So far this has been an excellent winter season. Whilst there have been a few big stroms bringing in some unsettled weather, for the most part it's been cold in the mountains, there's been lots of snow and it has even been pretty sunny!

February half-term is always a busy time for us and this year is no different. We've have lots of winter skills, ski tiouring and mountaineering courses running and things continue to be busy for the next while. 

The ski touring has been excellent, not just here in the Cairngorms but across the country with lots and lots of people out on their skis. The mountaineering and climbing has also been excellent with lots of routes getting in climbed in the sunshine.

We've been getting some great feedback on TripAdvisor and it's great to see so many familiar faces joining us for more winter training. 

Hopefully you've been out enjoying the snow.

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.
