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

This company were great. Dave took us out on the hills for 5 days and gave us a bespoke course on winter walking / climbing. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. He was an excellent teacher a really nice bloke and was incredibly patient with us all. Also, when we were planning the trip Liam was really great. We wanted help preparing ourselves for a specific goal and he was super helpful in explaining to us exactly what we needed to know/learn. It turns out we were being massively ambitious! But instead of just taking our money and sending us on our way Liam went out of his way to tailor a course to our needs. I can't recommend CAG enough.
