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

Back again after first 2 day bespoke winter skills course last year, to build on that time. Once again just excellent, friendly, flexible day. Jon our instructor was top-notch and completely got what we wanted to get out of this day, pushing us too but not too far! That takes a lot of experience and skill and we're so grateful The second day we were on our own which was great too- some errors but we learnt alot. We're looking to return next year to do a 5 day winter mountaineering/climbing course! Seriously can't wait for next year!!!
