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.

Cairngorm Adventure Guides 2 day Winter Mountaineering Intro One of the most rewarding weekends I have had in the hills. The guy's were knowledgeable.. calm.. and controlled through all the types of weather the Cairngorm mountain threw at us. Learnt a lot, at a controlled pace... I.e. no information dump... I left feeling more confident about getting out on the hills... and getting of them in bad weather if need be. I'll use these guy's again no problem. Enjoy.
