Great winter conditions continue #winterskills #wintermountaineering #skitouring #cairngorms #scotland

4th February 2018

The great run of weather and good mountain conditions continues!

Today, Sunday, was another one of those days that makes it all worth while. Social media is going into overdrive just now as everyone shares their weekend adventures. Hopefully you made it out too.

At CAG we're in full winter courses mode with lots of teams out doing winter skills, winter mountaineering and ski touring as well as a number of private/ bespoke courses. Regular updates are on our Facebook and Instagram feeds.

Having the skills to be safe in the mountains means getting out when it's grim and practicing, that way on days like today you can really enjoy it.

We're pretty much at capacity now for Feb, just the odd place here and there on ski touring courses. There's plenty life left in winter yet, so hopefully we'll see you in March if you're not already coming to join us this month.

Winter courses

Fun, varied and useful Our guide Johnny took us out on a cold and wintry but not very snowy day for winter skills training. We found patches of snow to practice self-belay and ice axe arrest, and learnt winter navigation skills, with flora and fauna pointed out along the way. The day was very much tailored to our group's needs and abilities so everyone was challenged but not pushed too far. Really fun, educational and useful for future winter walks.
