Mixed early January conditions #winter #mountaineering #climbing #cairngorms

9th January 2017

The weather forecast is now looking wintry, which is great to see and a bit of a relief! We've had really wintry spells followed by warm weather which has stripped almost all the snow away. Nonethelss we've still managed to use good locations to deliver lots of great training. Here are some photos from winter skills, a winter walking week duo, two climbing teams, a winter mountaineering trio and some navigation training teams who've been out with us so far.

As always, these courses are only a success becuase of the skill and experience of the excellent mountain folks who work for Cairngorm Adventure Guides!

Winter courses

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
