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

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
