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

I booked onto this course looking to build on my spring to autumn hillwalking experiences and to provide me with some training to extend my hillwalking into the winter season. Those on the course were of mixed ability and experience and all were made to feel welcome. The guidance and instruction given was clear and concise and the experiences on the hills developed navigation, ice-axe and crampon skills. (some in really brutal weather)The avalanche awareness instruction was fascinating as were the tools (apps) that are available to support your expedition planning. Liam welcomed the course which was then delivered by Ian and Kevin who equipped us with their expertise and local knowledge. Time constraints meant I could only attend 3 out of the 5 days but I am already looking for an opportunity to return to the snowy Cairngorms.
