Winter is coming

29th November 2017

Lots of folk out enjoying the early season conditons with plenty of photos doing the rounds on social media!

We've been busy bedding in our new webiste and taking bookings for our upcoming courses. We managed a trip out west today though and enjoyed looking at the snow (although not actually getting to touch it!)

Here in the Cairngorms and the north east there's a lot of snow and the usual high level roads are closed.

Bring it on!

Winter courses

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
