Great conditions for this week's winter skills & winter mountaineering courses

11th January 2018

Excellent conditions for some winter skills last week with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Adventurers from all over the country had great fun in some pretty chilly conditions on our Winter Mountaineering and Winter Skills Courses with Iain and Rachel.

Another team was also out learning crucial avalanche awareness skills with Kev. Definitely a course to think about booking on if you're heading out into the hills this winter. These skills could save your life, as well as giving you the confidence to plan days out and assess the conditions on the ground for walking, climbing and skiing.

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.
