The season that keeps on giving...... #winterskills #skitouring #winterclimbing #mountaineering

12th March 2018

It really does feel like the season that just keeps giving. At this point last year (which was an especially poor season) we had very little snow left and had cancelled almost all our courses.

We're fully booked this month, like last month, and there are just so many great mountain options that whatever the course and whatever the weather, there's always a good location to use.

Last week was one of the most challenging of the season with a few really stormy days. Our bit of northern Cairngorms are north west within the range and when we get south easterly winds (like we've had a lot of recently) the mountains compress and funnel the wind with significant affect by the time it gets to us. Even to low levels it has been super windy and far windier than forecasted.

As always, we're very grateful to our clients who've booked their winter skills, ski touring and winter climbing courses with us. The photos give a flavour of how it's been.

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!!
