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

Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm. There were 6 of us on the course (not inc Malcolm) and all completely new to ski touring and varying levels of ski experience. Malcolm adapted the course when required to suit all and took our course at a speed that was comfortable for everyone. The result being that we all had a fantastic time. The weather took a drastic turn for the worse with the heavy snow on the 2nd day and safety was put first cutting our time on the slope short. However we were probably all quite glad as we were definitely feeling the physical demands ski touring puts on your body by then lol. All in all, a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable course. We'd definitely recommend and would look at trying out the other courses on offer in the future. Thanks to the team, Barry, Ellie, Ant, Peter, our excellent guide Malcolm and event organiser Liam for a brilliant 2 days. Scott and I are properly knackered but loved sharing this experience with you all.Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm.
