This is our annual winter skills weekend based in the Cairngorms. Accommodation will be in the SYHA Hostel in Aviemore, which is well equipped for our needs. The winter walking group will be sharing a bus and accommodation but will be doing separate activities each day.
Sat 19 & Sun 20 January
Walkers - cost £105
This trip will be focussing on covering the fundamental winter mountaineering skills over the two days. We will have quick access to the snow in the Northern Cairngorms and may take in a high top or two if conditions allow. If folk already have some winter walking skills we can look at progressing to more advanced techniques.
Ski Tourers - cost £130
The two days will look at getting around the hill safely on skis. Elements of safe travel and navigation on skis along with transceiver and rescue work will be looked at. There will also be plenty of ski touring in between with a bit of ski coaching for those who are looking for it. The weekend has no steep touring planned, so is open to anyone with previous skiing experience.
