Winter returns to the Cairngorms (phew!) #winterskills #cairngorms

5th February 2017

After what has been a fairly warm and not that snowy January, it's good to see winter taking a hold of the mountains again. This weekend the temperature has really come down and we've had lots of fresh snowfall. The forecast this week coming is looking cold and snowy too!

We made the most of the dry (sometimes wet) and warm conditions of January, delivering lots of excellent walking, climbing and mountaineering courses. We had to reschedule and cancel a number of ski touirng courses unfortunately. It's times like these we're grateful for having experienced guides with extensive local knowledge.

Here are some photos of the last week or so. Regular photos are posted on our Facebook page.

Winter courses

Back again after first 2 day bespoke winter skills course last year, to build on that time. Once again just excellent, friendly, flexible day. Jon our instructor was top-notch and completely got what we wanted to get out of this day, pushing us too but not too far! That takes a lot of experience and skill and we're so grateful The second day we were on our own which was great too- some errors but we learnt alot. We're looking to return next year to do a 5 day winter mountaineering/climbing course! Seriously can't wait for next year!!!
