Good conditions for walking, skiing and climbing #winterskills #skitouring #winterclimbing

8th February 2019

Conditions improved dramatically during the last week of January (fortunately). Almost overnight temperatures dropped and snow began accummulating.

We've been busy with lots of winter skills, ski touring and winter mountaineering/ climbing courses. As much as conditions have improved there have still be a few challenging days here and there, so well done to our hardy clients for sticking with it.

Tomorrow is the start of the February half-term holidays and this year looks to be busier than ever with 75 folks out on 25 different course over 9 days! This will be a test of organisation!

There's plenty of winter left. Please get in touch if you'd like some winter training or guiding.

Winter courses

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
