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!

Winter courses

Absolutely loved the course! Our instructor Annie was very good and knowledgeable about all aspects of touring, she taught us all about the kit, what to pack in bag, avalanche training, planning of tour and lots more. The first day we toured to top of Cairngorm summit with some Ice on the way and managed to test ski crampons. The second day was probably one of the best experiences On skis when we reached the summit of Gael Charn and the view was unreal and the ski down was brilliant. Amazing week and recommend the course.
