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

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
