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.

Cairngorm Adventure Guides 2 day Winter Mountaineering Intro One of the most rewarding weekends I have had in the hills. The guy's were knowledgeable.. calm.. and controlled through all the types of weather the Cairngorm mountain threw at us. Learnt a lot, at a controlled pace... I.e. no information dump... I left feeling more confident about getting out on the hills... and getting of them in bad weather if need be. I'll use these guy's again no problem. Enjoy.
