Happy New Year! (Winter Climbing Cairngorms & Avalanche Training)

3rd January 2018

Snowy in the Cairngorms

We hope you had a great festive period and are now psyched for getting out into the mountains. It's been cold and snowy in the mountains for last week or so now, with lots of snow falling on the west coast.

Over here in the east we've had various teams out for winter skills, avalanche training  and winter climbing. Today was the start of our five day winter skills course. They enjoyed a cracking day in the hills.

We've got lots on over the next few months. Please get in touch if you'd like to join one of our courses or to get out in the hills.

Winter courses

I booked onto this course looking to build on my spring to autumn hillwalking experiences and to provide me with some training to extend my hillwalking into the winter season. Those on the course were of mixed ability and experience and all were made to feel welcome. The guidance and instruction given was clear and concise and the experiences on the hills developed navigation, ice-axe and crampon skills. (some in really brutal weather)The avalanche awareness instruction was fascinating as were the tools (apps) that are available to support your expedition planning. Liam welcomed the course which was then delivered by Ian and Kevin who equipped us with their expertise and local knowledge. Time constraints meant I could only attend 3 out of the 5 days but I am already looking for an opportunity to return to the snowy Cairngorms.
