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.

Great day Me and friends had a winter mountaineering skills day with Matt & Graham. There knowledge in the area was fantastic. Teaching us the safety we needed whilst being in the mountains in a practical and theoretical setting, being able to implement when out in the mountains. Personally, with having a physical disability, I found that they were great. Letting me develop my skills individually whilst supporting me at the right time. Overall, great safe day out in the mountains with some excellent guides.
