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

I had a great time at Aviemore for my 2 days introduction to winter skills course. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and always made time to answer everyone's question. Thorough checks on the correct kit and being prepared for a day in the mountains made me aware of a couple flaws in my own preparation. I have now corrected these and feel more confidant of the hills as a result. Very worth while doing so don't hesitate to sign up and learn how to be safe.
