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

Fun, varied and useful Our guide Johnny took us out on a cold and wintry but not very snowy day for winter skills training. We found patches of snow to practice self-belay and ice axe arrest, and learnt winter navigation skills, with flora and fauna pointed out along the way. The day was very much tailored to our group's needs and abilities so everyone was challenged but not pushed too far. Really fun, educational and useful for future winter walks.
