Winter is coming... #rockclimbing #ridgescrambling #mountaineering #seakayaking

5th October 2020

Things have turned cooler, the nights are drawing in and there even been some snow on the tops.

Over the last month or so we've had plenty of teams out rock climbing and mountaineering, and we've also managed some personal sea kayaking. The weather's been mixed so being creative and flexible has been key to having successful days out.

It's always exciting thinking ahead to winter and hoping for great conditions. This year will be a little different with new covid protocols, but we're looking forward to getting out ourselves as well delivering lots of winter skills, winter mountaineering and ski touring courses. 

Winter isn't quite here yet though and there's plenty of time to enjoy autumn and all its fantastic colours.

Our cousres are beginning to fill up already, so please get in touch if you'd like to join us.

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.
