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

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.
