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

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
