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.

Great few days winter skills training We organised three days winter skills training with a private guide in mid December. For the 5 of us this worked out really well and we had a fantastic few days in the mountains. We are all summer walkers so it was certainly a challenge in the deep snow and poor visibility. Liam was helpful throughout the booking process and met us with a warm welcome and Jon our guide was knowledgeable and helpful throughout. Would thoroughly recommend these guys to look after you in the mountains. Will be booking again for this year.
