Lean conditions but a good forecast

6th January 2019

Happy new year!

The warm festive weather stripped away a lot of snow and although it's been colder recently it's also been dry. We've had lots of winter skills teams out who had to eek out the snowy patches but have had fun doing so and learned lots along the way.

At present there's no ski touring to be had and only a few broken mountaineering/ climbing lines are being climbed in the Northern Corries at the moment. Fortunately it's turning cold and snowy this week and things look much, much better from the middle of the month.

Let's hope that's the start of things.

We have limited availability on our courses now, but please get in touch if you're interested and we'll do our best to squeeze you in.

Winter courses

Johnny was our guide for the day and his positive attitude made our learning experience fun despite the brutal Scottish winter conditions. He took time to understand what we wanted and tailored the course to meet our requirements - all in all, a great first introduction into winter mountaineering - makes me want to get out into the mountains again!
