Winter Skills & Winter Mountaineering in the Cairngorms

22nd December 2017

It's been a great week with loads of teams out on winter skills and winter mountaineering courses. 

The week started of cold and wintry but slowed warmed throughout the week. Although lots of snow was lost, cool nights kept what snow remained firm and good for our teams to do their stuff on.

Rory and pals finished their fifth day of a private winter skills course today with a mountaineering journey over to Loch Avon. 

It's looking cold and unsettled over the festive period which will bring conditions back.

Here are a few snaps of the last few days.

I completed a 4 day winter skills course with Cairngorm Adventure Guides in February. Ross was a great guide and leader and really knowledgeable. Learned so much but was particularly happy that after the 4 days, after years of just not 'getting it' navigating using a compass finally made sense to me. Would absolutely recommend to anyone interested in winter walking.
