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

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.
