This weekend was the last winter course we have run and I’m proud to say that we have introduced 53 people to winter mountaineering. It has been a challenging winter from the start. There wasn’t a lot of snow to start with in January and as much as fell in February it was just skin deep and fizzled away in a few days of rain and high temperatures. From mid-February, we had 2 figure temperatures even on the summit of Cairn Gorm but still managed to find enough snow to run all the planned courses. Everyone on our courses went away with a buzz.

Here are some statistic for this winter season.

Booked on a 2 day Winter Skills Course: 36
