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

Johnny was our guide for the day and his positive attitude made our learning experience fun despite the brutal Scottish winter conditions. He took time to understand what we wanted and tailored the course to meet our requirements - all in all, a great first introduction into winter mountaineering - makes me want to get out into the mountains again!
