winter conditions

Last weekend would be the first time this winter when I didn’t have to battle into the wind and we even managed to have lunch breaks. On Saturday we went into Coire Ciste and did some of the slipping, tripping and sliding skills, while on Sunday we walked into Coire an t-Sneachda for all the...

This year winter has been a wee bit slow to arrive but with storm Ciara and the Dennis, it eventually has. The 2 storms were at 2 consecutive weekends in February, which also meant that running a course was rather challenging. On one day we only managed to walk 10 metres from the cars and...

Last weekend we had some pretty strong winds in the hills, which made the course a little more tricky to run. However, we managed to fit it all in. On Saturday we went up the ski area at Coire Cas and went through all the walking, cutting steps, kicking step, crampons and avalanche awareness bits...

The start of the 5 day winter mountaineering course was first wet on Saturday. We managed to find a decent spot for most of the skills. Sunday was pretty wild high up with winds of up to 70mph and blizzard conditions. Therefore we stayed low at the Glenmore forest and did a fair amount of...

On Tuesday we have gone up to Ciste Mhearad for digging a snowhole and staying overnight. The original plan was to get up there on Monday but the wind was gusting up to 70mph. So that was a none-starter. The weather was just perfect for getting up to the Corrie and we started digging at...

Looks like the snow has returned. Lets hope there is some more on the way.
