The start of winter 2020

27th October 2019

It's been a while since we've done any blogging, which is mainly becuase we spend our summers working on tv and film productions (https://www.mountainandwatersafety.co.uk/). This year has been very busy with film work and we've been working across the UK and the world on different productions like Bond, Wonder Women, Fast & Furious to name but a few.

Winter has arrived in the mountains and it's great getting ready for it all to kick off.

Here are some photos of recent hill walking and the summit of Cairn Gorm (27.10.19), along with a selection of random filming related shots.

Our winter courses are beginning to fill and we're keeping everything crossed for lots of snow.

Winter courses

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
