Warm conditions but a return to winter coming soon #winterskills #wintermountaineerng #winterclimbing #skitouring

26th February 2019

With limited snow cover, fresh flowers in the garden and the smell of Spring in the air it's easy to think winter's over. Well, it's not. As of this weekend it's turning cold again and we'll start to see snow accummulating once more on the mountains.

February has been a good but challenging month for delivering mountaineering courses.  Managing expectations, knowing the mountains well and having an experienced and creative mountaineering team has been key to ensuring we're offering the best training and experiences possible.

We've had over 100 people on our courses during February. Some enjoyed very wintry conditions, others much less so but either way they've enjoyed themselves and left with new skills and mcuh greater mountaineering knowledge.

The only courses we have availbility on are our winter skills and ski touring courses. If you fancy joining us before the season ends, please get in touch.

Let's hope for an 'easier' March!

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.
