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

Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm. There were 6 of us on the course (not inc Malcolm) and all completely new to ski touring and varying levels of ski experience. Malcolm adapted the course when required to suit all and took our course at a speed that was comfortable for everyone. The result being that we all had a fantastic time. The weather took a drastic turn for the worse with the heavy snow on the 2nd day and safety was put first cutting our time on the slope short. However we were probably all quite glad as we were definitely feeling the physical demands ski touring puts on your body by then lol. All in all, a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable course. We'd definitely recommend and would look at trying out the other courses on offer in the future. Thanks to the team, Barry, Ellie, Ant, Peter, our excellent guide Malcolm and event organiser Liam for a brilliant 2 days. Scott and I are properly knackered but loved sharing this experience with you all.Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm.
