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

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
