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

This was some seriously good training. I've spent plenty of time in the Scottish mountains and even had some winter Alpine experience over the last 10+ years, and still managed to learn tons. Don't think these courses are only for beginners, the guides will adapt to your current skill level and you'll still pop out the other end a much better, more confident mountaineer. The guides we were with (Iain and Jon) are a credit to the company, they had so much knowledge to pass on to us and it always came across as if it was tailored to us, even though they have probably been covering the same things for many years with many different clients. I would thoroughly recommend Cairngorm Adventure Guides!!
