Thanks to all the clients who've been out on courses over the last wee while. This winters conditions continue to be challenging, but we've still managed to deliver lots of courses, making the most of what we have. The weather forecast is looking wintry again, but it remains to be seen how long it will stay cold for. Here's hoping for at least a month! 

Here are some snaps from winter skills, intro winter walking and guided climbig days of late.

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.
