Great conditions thanks to Ciara & Dennis! #winterskills #wintermountaineering #skitouring

7th March 2020

We have had teams all over the Cairngorms ski touring, winter mountaineering and winter walking in the last few weeks in occasionally stormy, but more often fantastic conditions.  We have great coverage even at lower level for ski touring, and some clients even managed to squeeze in a few powder turns on the pistes!

If you fancy a wee bit of the ski touring action we still have two five day courses available on 16th March and 30th March, it would be great for you to join us!

Our winter skills courses are still running into the start of April and we still have some places available.  The mountains are spectacular in the March sun, why not come and see them for yourself?

Winter courses

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
