Ski Touring, Cain Gorm

10th December 2017

Best day of the season, so far

Well, what a day in the Cairngorms. After a week of cold a stormy conditions things finally cleared up today and lots of folk were out enjoying wall to wall sunshine, snow covered mountains as far as the eye can see and.... snow!

It's typical after big storms for the hills to be scoured in areas, so we headed to some of the sheltered areas on the back of Cairn Gorm to eek out some fresh snow and enjoy the sunshine.

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!
