Ski mountaineering, ski touring and Freeride skiing in Scotland

Ski mountaineering, BackCountry ski touring and Freeride skiing in Aviemore, the Cairngorms & Scotland have become hugely popular in recent years, it is perhaps the most satisfying and efficient way of exploring and travelling through the mountains during the winter months.

The Mountains of the Cairngorms National Park are by far the premium mountain peaks for ski touring in Scotland, although we are happy to guide in other parts of the Scottish Highlands.

Escaping to the Backcountry gets us away from the crowded and expensive ski slopes and into the great mountain wilderness areas of Scotland.  If you’re a keen skier, hill walker or climber, we would love to welcome you to Active to discover and develope the skills required to ski tour safely in the Scottish mountains.

Our Back country ski mountaineering & touring days are based in the Cairngorm National Park  in and around Newtonmore and the Aviemore area (Badenoch & Strathspey). We will ski mainly in the Cairngorm mountains which are Scotland’s finest ski touring mountains, however, should conditions be favourable, we may opt to visit Creag Meagaidh or the Monadhliath mountains.  During the 4 day course we include an overnight snow holing expedition if conditions allow.

Our ski mountaineering & touring days are based from Aviemore and our 2 & 4 day courses from the Cairngorms Adventure Centre Newtonmore (accommodation included). We will ski mainly in the Cairngorm mountains which are Scotland’s finest ski touring mountains but should conditions be favourable, we may also visit Creag Meagaidh or the Monadhliath mountains.  During the 4 day course there may be scope for an overnight expedition.

Scottish Freeride skiing courses & guiding

Join our Freeride skiing courses or guided freeride ski days in Aviemore and Fort William. Enjoy untracked snow and steep thrills away from the crowded pistes of Cairngorm or Nevis Range.

Freeride skiing normally uses the uplift of the Scottish Ski Centres but takes more challenging off piste descents back to the base station. Skiers must be capable on piste skiers capable of making controlled descents on black runs.
