28th January 2018

As always we're really grateful to all the folks who book with us, but epsecially those who keep the faith even when the weather's looking wild.

That was certainly the case this weekend. After a week of mixed  but often nice settled weather, conditions deteriorated just in time for Saturday!

All last week and this weekend we've had teams out doing winter skills, winter climbing and ski touring, all having a good time and finding good conditions.

When's there's lots of snow and sunshine it's easy. The skill of our amazing guides is delivering excellent courses on the most unlikely of days.

More of the same this coming week. Can't wait.

Winter courses

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
