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

Five day Winter Skills course, fantastic experience! A group of five inexperienced mountain men had a great time learning new skills, including ice axe arrest, walking on flat ice, navigating steep snow slopes, avalanche awareness. We had two guides through the week, both highly professional and responsive to our goals and desires. Liam was so helpful in sorting out gear for members of the group lacking gaiters or a jacket, for example, and also organising other things, like lifts back to the youth hostel and prompt pick up off the mountain. I can't recommend CAG highly enough!
