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.

Cairngorm Adventure Guides 2 day Winter Mountaineering Intro One of the most rewarding weekends I have had in the hills. The guy's were knowledgeable.. calm.. and controlled through all the types of weather the Cairngorm mountain threw at us. Learnt a lot, at a controlled pace... I.e. no information dump... I left feeling more confident about getting out on the hills... and getting of them in bad weather if need be. I'll use these guy's again no problem. Enjoy.
