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

Five day Winter Skills course, fantastic experience! A group of five inexperienced mountain men had a great time learning new skills, including ice axe arrest, walking on flat ice, navigating steep snow slopes, avalanche awareness. We had two guides through the week, both highly professional and responsive to our goals and desires. Liam was so helpful in sorting out gear for members of the group lacking gaiters or a jacket, for example, and also organising other things, like lifts back to the youth hostel and prompt pick up off the mountain. I can't recommend CAG highly enough!
