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

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
