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

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
