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

Great day Me and friends had a winter mountaineering skills day with Matt & Graham. There knowledge in the area was fantastic. Teaching us the safety we needed whilst being in the mountains in a practical and theoretical setting, being able to implement when out in the mountains. Personally, with having a physical disability, I found that they were great. Letting me develop my skills individually whilst supporting me at the right time. Overall, great safe day out in the mountains with some excellent guides.
