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

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.
