Great winter conditions all last week until Friday before a major thaw set in on Saturday, this is what's left on Sunday afternoon, this is normal!
In most years this is the normal pattern as the days shorten and the ground cools with winter coming and going in October through November before becoming firmly establish around Christmas and the New Year and the start of our open winter skills and winter mountaineering courses.
During early December if winter conditions are suitable, we run our winter skills course on demand and for private groups.

A stunning start to the winter season and a chance to check out the snow cover on our local hills for winter skills, climbing and skiing - cover is surprisingly good :-)
We have also recently updated our website with our Scottish winter skills and winter mountaineering course dates for 2019 and these can be booked direct from the website.
We're running a few winter skills weekends in early December as well as Christmas and New Year winter skills and winter mountaineering courses.
If the dates or standard winter courses don't suit or for winter climbing we can easily organise private guiding and instruction at a date to suit.
