Ski Mountaineering

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

Skis have long been considered the most efficient way to travel through the winter mountains. In its beginning it was a simple way to reach villages and to get to towns cut off by snow. Now though it's recognised as simply just great fun. Very few things can match getting away from the crowds, ticking summits and finding untracked snow. In recent years with some good winters and the advancement in equipment, ski touring has experienced a real growth in interest and participation.

Our Ski Touring courses aim to give you all 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.
