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

Back again after first 2 day bespoke winter skills course last year, to build on that time. Once again just excellent, friendly, flexible day. Jon our instructor was top-notch and completely got what we wanted to get out of this day, pushing us too but not too far! That takes a lot of experience and skill and we're so grateful The second day we were on our own which was great too- some errors but we learnt alot. We're looking to return next year to do a 5 day winter mountaineering/climbing course! Seriously can't wait for next year!!!
