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

Absolutely loved the course! Our instructor Annie was very good and knowledgeable about all aspects of touring, she taught us all about the kit, what to pack in bag, avalanche training, planning of tour and lots more. The first day we toured to top of Cairngorm summit with some Ice on the way and managed to test ski crampons. The second day was probably one of the best experiences On skis when we reached the summit of Gael Charn and the view was unreal and the ski down was brilliant. Amazing week and recommend the course.
