And so it begins, winter 2019. #skitouring #cairngormsnationalpark #aviemore

Temperatures have dropped and snow has been falling for the last week or so on the mountains. With social media getting everyone excited about the forthcoming winter season, we nipped out for our first ski tour of the season. While lots of fun, conditions were ok higher up but very limited lower down....

We've had a very busy year working on film sets looking after crew and cast in mountainous and watery film locations (www.mountainandwatersafety.co.uk). Last week we were doing some water rescue CPD. Always very worthwhile, even if it was a touch chilly at this time of year!

Our winter courses are beginning to fill up and we're looking forward to the next few months. Pleaes get in touch if you'd like some winter training or guiding.

Winter courses

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
