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

Winter Climbing 5 day course: Amazing experience This is my third time using Cairngorm adventure guides and I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Dave, our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, patient and a fantastic teacher. He really took the time to understand what we wanted from the course and each day was tailored to suit our goals and progress our skills. Liam (the owner) was lovely as always, responding promptly to emails, making sure we had everything we needed to have a fantastic week. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
