And they're off! #winterskills #wintermountaineering

15th December 2019

Great conditions and happy clients make for a good start to our winter season.

This weekend we've had four different winter skills courses running, each enjoying the challenging but fun conditions we have at the moment. 

Undertaking winter skills or any other type of winter mountaineering training early in the season means you have lots of time left to get out and practice. Hopefully we're in for a bumper season and our 24 lovely clients this weekend will manage to get out lots.

There were plenty other ski touring and winter climbing teams out enjoying themselves too.

Our next 5 day ski touring course starts on the 20th Jan. If you fancy learning all the backcountry skills, please get in touch: https://www.cairngormadventureguides.co.uk/winter-courses/intro-to-ski-mountaineering

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.
