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

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
