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.

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.
