Winter Courses

At Cairngorm Adventure Guides our aim has always been to help more people enjoy the mountains safely.
Whether you’re just beginning to explore the outdoors, or you’re more experienced, we have courses and experts to develop and sharpen your skills. We provide winter skills, mountaineering, climbing and ski touring courses for everyone. If you’re looking to gain competence that will help you access the mountains, or even just a guide to keep you on the right path, you’ve come to the right place.

We know we’re fortunate to have the Cairngorms on our doorstep - it’s why we’re here. We understand the winter environment can be alluring and beautiful, and we recognise the importance of developing awareness of this landscape. All Cairngorm Adventure Guides staff know the mountains intimately, and respect them appropriately. But ultimately we’re here because we love playing in the Cairngorms! Whether it's climbing in the Northern Corries, walking in the remote Eastern Cairngorms, or ski touring on the plateau, our expert guidance will help you experience the region like a local.

We’re based in Aviemore, in the heart of the Cairngorms, and we specialise in the following areas:

Please take the time to browse our course details. We endeavour to bring the same methodical approach and attention to detail that allows us to thrive in the mountains to our course design. And if you do have any questions, please give us a shout. We’re always on hand to answer your queries, and we love talking about the outdoors! 

We also offer discounts to University Mountaineering Clubs, Hill Walking Clubs, Ski Clubs and other large groups, so please mention this when you get in touch.
