Turning colder! #winterskills #wintermountaineering #skitouring

13th January 2020

It's been a real mixed bag of weather recently. Things really warmed up after the new year and although it has recently turned cold, we've had very strong winds in the Cairngorms and not that much snowfall. Fortunately this week looks like we'll get more snow.

As always we've had a lot of people out on our popular winter skills courses. It's been challenging delivering in lean and windy conditions but hopefully we've managed to deliver good quality training with the snow and conditions available. Thanks as always to those who've booked with us and have kept the faith!

We're almost at capacity now for January and February, but have a few random places on winter skills and ski touring courses. 

If you fancy some training and are hoping the forecasts are right, please get in touch.

Winter courses

Back again after first 2 day bespoke winter skills course last year, to build on that time. Once again just excellent, friendly, flexible day. Jon our instructor was top-notch and completely got what we wanted to get out of this day, pushing us too but not too far! That takes a lot of experience and skill and we're so grateful The second day we were on our own which was great too- some errors but we learnt alot. We're looking to return next year to do a 5 day winter mountaineering/climbing course! Seriously can't wait for next year!!!
