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

This was some seriously good training. I've spent plenty of time in the Scottish mountains and even had some winter Alpine experience over the last 10+ years, and still managed to learn tons. Don't think these courses are only for beginners, the guides will adapt to your current skill level and you'll still pop out the other end a much better, more confident mountaineer. The guides we were with (Iain and Jon) are a credit to the company, they had so much knowledge to pass on to us and it always came across as if it was tailored to us, even though they have probably been covering the same things for many years with many different clients. I would thoroughly recommend Cairngorm Adventure Guides!!
