Winter Walking Skills Courses in the Cairngorms, Scotland
Our winter walking courses aim to introduce or develop the skills that you need to stay safe in the mountains during winter. These courses are ideal for people who have an interest in winter walking but limited experience, or those who would like to refresh their winter skills.
Which winter skills course is right for me?
That depends on what you want to learn, how experienced you are, how much time you have and your budget.
Our 5 Day Winter Skills Course is the best option for growing your confidence and winter skills, and it gets brilliant feedback from participants. If you can only spare a weekend, then our 2 Day Winter Skills Course is a fantastic alternative.
For those who have already taken part in our 2-day or 5-day winter walking courses, the next step is our Intro to Winter Mountaineering Skills Course.
If you’d prefer to safely explore Scotland’s mountains in all their snow-capped glory, rather than focus on developing your winter walking skills, our 5-Day Winter Walking Holiday is for you.
Or, do things your way and hire a winter walking guide to help you reach a specific summit, develop a particular skill or simply help you plan the perfect day out.
All Cairngorm Adventure Guides instructors are qualified and experienced, making them the perfect people to coach and lead you safely in the mountains.
