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.

Absolutely loved the course! Our instructor Annie was very good and knowledgeable about all aspects of touring, she taught us all about the kit, what to pack in bag, avalanche training, planning of tour and lots more. The first day we toured to top of Cairngorm summit with some Ice on the way and managed to test ski crampons. The second day was probably one of the best experiences On skis when we reached the summit of Gael Charn and the view was unreal and the ski down was brilliant. Amazing week and recommend the course.
