Spring in the air, but winter is still clinging on! #winterskills #wintermountaineering #hillwalking

9th April 2019

Spring is definitely in the air but winter hasn't given up quite yet. 

Last week it turned cold again and it felt more like February at times. Although this brought some ski touring and winter walking/ mountaineering back into condition, it's all a bit too-little-too-late! 

We've had various teams out for winter mountaineering, rock climbing, hill walking and winter skills. Conditions this week have been almost Alpine, and if you're heading out make sure you wear suncream!!!

Overall this winter has been challenging, but we've still managed to deliver good quality training through being flexible, creative and having an excellent team. We've had over 300 people out this season, our busiest ever. Thanks as always to all those who've chosen to book with us.

Here's hoping for a long hot summer.

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.
