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.

Check out our great range of winter skills, ski touring and winter climbing courses.

Winter courses

This was some seriously good training. I've spent plenty of time in the Scottish mountains and even had some winter Alpine experience over the last 10+ years, and still managed to learn tons. Don't think these courses are only for beginners, the guides will adapt to your current skill level and you'll still pop out the other end a much better, more confident mountaineer. The guides we were with (Iain and Jon) are a credit to the company, they had so much knowledge to pass on to us and it always came across as if it was tailored to us, even though they have probably been covering the same things for many years with many different clients. I would thoroughly recommend Cairngorm Adventure Guides!!
