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

26th November 2018

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

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
