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

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

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.
