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

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!
