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

Absolutely loved the course! Our instructor Annie was very good and knowledgeable about all aspects of touring, she taught us all about the kit, what to pack in bag, avalanche training, planning of tour and lots more. The first day we toured to top of Cairngorm summit with some Ice on the way and managed to test ski crampons. The second day was probably one of the best experiences On skis when we reached the summit of Gael Charn and the view was unreal and the ski down was brilliant. Amazing week and recommend the course.
