Ski Mountaineering

Introduction to Scottish ski touring & backcountry; ski touring guiding; avalanche training & off-piste coaching courses. Based in Aviemore, Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.

Skis have long been considered the most efficient way to travel through the mountains in winter. In the beginning ski touring was a way to reach villages and towns cut off by snow, now it's simply great fun! Few things can match getting away from the crowds, ticking off summits and finding untracked snow. In recent years good winters and advances in equipment have contributed to the growth of ski touring activity in Scotland.

Our ski touring courses aim to give you the skills needed to take to the mountains safely and independently on skis. We will look to compliment your skiing with essential backcountry techniques for ascending, off piste skiing, route planning, understanding the winter environment, and personal winter skills.

Cairngorm Adventure Guides offer a wide range of courses to suit novices and advanced skiers alike.
