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

Brilliant weekend with wonderful guides These guys have a really great set up here. All the course leaders were incredibly knowledgeable and had lots of advice. I always felt really secure, even trying new skills and terrain. I learned lots over the two day course and beautiful weather made for stunning views of the Cairngorms. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to learn about tackling the mountains in winter.
