Winter Skills - 15th Dec

15th December 2017

Beginning of our winter courses

Today was the start of our 2017/18 winter programme and it was great to have Mark & team out in proper Scottish conditions; poor visibility, freezing cold and hard work in the deep snow!

The team made their way into the flat ice in Coire an-t Sneachda.

More of the same tomorrow for Mark and team, as well as our various other groups who are out.

Winter courses

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
