Wintry conditions in the Cairngorms #winterskills #winterclimbing #wintermountaineering

4th March 2019

It's been great to see snow building on the mountains again. After a warm February it felt as though it was all over, but it's remarkable how quicly it can start to improve.

Over the weekend we had lots of people on winter skills courses (28no!) as well as a winter climbing duo out. When conditions are lean but it's a wintry forecast, delivering good quality winter training courses is challenging. Having a strong team like we do, is essential.

The forecats continues to be cold and snowy. We have limited availability on our advanced winter skills, intro ski touring and winter walking weeks. Please get in touch if you would like to join us.

Winter courses

Fun, varied and useful Our guide Johnny took us out on a cold and wintry but not very snowy day for winter skills training. We found patches of snow to practice self-belay and ice axe arrest, and learnt winter navigation skills, with flora and fauna pointed out along the way. The day was very much tailored to our group's needs and abilities so everyone was challenged but not pushed too far. Really fun, educational and useful for future winter walks.
