Great conditions in the 'Gorms (at last) #winterskills #ski touring #climbing #courses #introduction #cairngorms #Scotland

1st March 2017

After a fairly driech weekend (well done to all those who survived and kept smiling) it's turned out to be a really cracking week. 

For us it's been more winter skills, winter mountaineering and ski touring. Although at times challenging, conditions have also been excellent for learning and practicing new skills on. We've had a mix of private winter skills teams, women only groups and our open courses all out making the most of it. 

It feels though it'll be a late winter this year. Fingers crossed for skiing right though until May!

Winter courses

Absolutely loved the course! Our instructor Annie was very good and knowledgeable about all aspects of touring, she taught us all about the kit, what to pack in bag, avalanche training, planning of tour and lots more. The first day we toured to top of Cairngorm summit with some Ice on the way and managed to test ski crampons. The second day was probably one of the best experiences On skis when we reached the summit of Gael Charn and the view was unreal and the ski down was brilliant. Amazing week and recommend the course.
