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

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.
