Happy new year #winterskills #wintermountaineering #skitouring

3rd January 2020

Happy new year, it's definitely time for us to burn off some of the festive excesses! 

Having excellent conditions in December and up to Christmas it all turned a bit warm a few days ago, which has had a big impact on the snowpack. Although things have turned colder and the remiaing snow is really firm, we could now do with a few big winter storms. Fingers crossed for some cold weather over the next 10 days.

We've managed to make the most of the limited conditions and have a ski touring and three winter skills teams out. If you know where to go, there's still good training to be had.

We're almost at capacity for winter but have a few places on winter skills and ski touring courses. If you fancy joining us please get in touch.

Winter courses

This company were great. Dave took us out on the hills for 5 days and gave us a bespoke course on winter walking / climbing. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. He was an excellent teacher a really nice bloke and was incredibly patient with us all. Also, when we were planning the trip Liam was really great. We wanted help preparing ourselves for a specific goal and he was super helpful in explaining to us exactly what we needed to know/learn. It turns out we were being massively ambitious! But instead of just taking our money and sending us on our way Liam went out of his way to tailor a course to our needs. I can't recommend CAG enough.
