Ski Touring in Fort William
Ski touring in Fort William is one the most satisfying and efficient way of exploring and travelling through the Nevis Range or Glencoe. It is also a great way for gaining access to climbs. If you have yet to try it why not give it a go and learn to ski tour this winter and book on to our ski mountaineering & touring guided days or courses.
We can run our ski touring days anywhere across Scotland. We will ski mainly in the Nevis range but should conditions be favourable, we may also visit Creag Meagaidh, the Monadhliath mountains and the Cairngorms. During the 4 day course there may be scope for an overnight expedition.
