Last of winter courses for 2017! #winterskills #ski touring #climbing #courses #introduction #cairngorms #Scotland

29th March 2017

Whilst the recent weather has been great and hopefully a taste of what's to come this summer(!), it hasn't been great for winter mountaineering lovers. That said, hill walking conditions have been lovely and the existing snowpack offers excellent cramponing and climbing in the easier, complete gullies.

It's been another great season for us (depsite the challenging conditions). This is because of our great clients and excellent team of guides.

The lambing snows can't be far away, but for us we're looking forward to lots of summer adventures now.

Here are a few snaps of how the last week has looked.

Winter courses

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
