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

This was some seriously good training. I've spent plenty of time in the Scottish mountains and even had some winter Alpine experience over the last 10+ years, and still managed to learn tons. Don't think these courses are only for beginners, the guides will adapt to your current skill level and you'll still pop out the other end a much better, more confident mountaineer. The guides we were with (Iain and Jon) are a credit to the company, they had so much knowledge to pass on to us and it always came across as if it was tailored to us, even though they have probably been covering the same things for many years with many different clients. I would thoroughly recommend Cairngorm Adventure Guides!!
