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

This company were great. Dave took us out on the hills for 5 days and gave us a bespoke course on winter walking / climbing. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. He was an excellent teacher a really nice bloke and was incredibly patient with us all. Also, when we were planning the trip Liam was really great. We wanted help preparing ourselves for a specific goal and he was super helpful in explaining to us exactly what we needed to know/learn. It turns out we were being massively ambitious! But instead of just taking our money and sending us on our way Liam went out of his way to tailor a course to our needs. I can't recommend CAG enough.
