Winter Skills and Ski-Mountaineering Courses 2019
This is an index page to the ski-mountaineering skills, climbing and winter walking skills courses that we've scheduled for winter 2018-19. Courses will be run and taught by John or Linda Biggar, and are mostly based in the Cairngorms in the Scottish Highlands. Please enquire if these dates or timings are not suitable, especially if you are a couple or larger group. For such groups we can normally be very flexible with dates and venues, and alter these to suit yourselves.
