Turning very cold..... #winterskills #skitouring #winterclimbing #wintermountaineering

25th February 2018

The run of great winter weather has continued. It's been cold last week, and very windy at times, but it looks as though we're in for a really cold period this coming week, even to low levels! 

After a mild thaw earlier in the week, the snowpack refroze and has since offered some excellent conditions for walking and climbing, as well as ski touring where it has softened in the sun.

The February half term holidays are now over which will make the Northern Cairngorms that little bit quieter until Easter in just over a month. It's an ideal time for getting out and enjoying the great mountain condiitons.

These are a selection of photos showing off the conditons on our intro winter mountaineering, introduction to ski touring and winter skills courses that have all been going on. Enjoy.

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!!!
