Improving conditions #winterclimbing #wintermountaineering #winterskills

17th January 2019

The last couple of weeks have been pretty dire on the mountains and at times not as wintry as we'd like (despite the photos!).

We've cancelled a few courses but have still a few winter skills and mountaineering trips. As always, our team have managed to eek out the best of conditions to ensure they deliver the best possible experience.

Things have turned wintry again and the forecast is promising. There's still a bit to go before the skiing and climbing will be fully in, but let's hope this is the start of it!

Winter courses

I booked onto this course looking to build on my spring to autumn hillwalking experiences and to provide me with some training to extend my hillwalking into the winter season. Those on the course were of mixed ability and experience and all were made to feel welcome. The guidance and instruction given was clear and concise and the experiences on the hills developed navigation, ice-axe and crampon skills. (some in really brutal weather)The avalanche awareness instruction was fascinating as were the tools (apps) that are available to support your expedition planning. Liam welcomed the course which was then delivered by Ian and Kevin who equipped us with their expertise and local knowledge. Time constraints meant I could only attend 3 out of the 5 days but I am already looking for an opportunity to return to the snowy Cairngorms.
