The last of 2018! #winterskills #wintermountaineering #winterclimbing #cairngorms

29th December 2018

Here are some photos from before Christmas when it was a lot more wintry on the mountains. We had six different teams on winter skills, mountaineering and climbing courses. All the teams did really well and made the most of some very good early season conditions. 

Sadly it's been a bit warm over the festive period, which has stripped away a lot of the snow cover. The forecast is turning cold after the new year, so fingers crossed it gets good again.

Happy new year when it comes.

Winter courses

Back again after first 2 day bespoke winter skills course last year, to build on that time. Once again just excellent, friendly, flexible day. Jon our instructor was top-notch and completely got what we wanted to get out of this day, pushing us too but not too far! That takes a lot of experience and skill and we're so grateful The second day we were on our own which was great too- some errors but we learnt alot. We're looking to return next year to do a 5 day winter mountaineering/climbing course! Seriously can't wait for next year!!!
