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.

Winter courses

Brilliant weekend with wonderful guides These guys have a really great set up here. All the course leaders were incredibly knowledgeable and had lots of advice. I always felt really secure, even trying new skills and terrain. I learned lots over the two day course and beautiful weather made for stunning views of the Cairngorms. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to learn about tackling the mountains in winter.
