Cairngorm Camping Trip – Winter Walking or Ski Touring
Winter Walkers Cost £90
Ski Tourers Cost £110
This expedition will be based in the Cairngorms once more because the area offers the best late season conditions. In previous years we’ve camped in the area of the Hutchie Hut, the Feith Buidhe area or bivvied either high on the hill or down by the Shelterstone.
We plan to be flexible. Both teams will depart from the same area, usually in the northern Corries. Ideally skiers and walkers would go their own way during the day and try and meet up at night. This makes for a sociable outing. Both groups will try and take in at least one Munro. We might go east this year to the Ben Avon plateau or equally, if conditions are good, go west to the Braeriach area.
Ski tourer requirements - confident skiing red runs and experience of ski touring summits in Scotland or the Alps
Winter walker requirements – previous winter walking experience. Winter camping experience desirable.
