Ski mountaineering & touring in Scotland has become a hugely popular activity, it is perhaps the most satisfying and efficient way of exploring and travelling through the mountains around Aviemore, the Cairngorms & across Scotland. It is also a great way to gain access to climbing routes. If this sounds like your thing, we would love to welcome you to Active to learn the skills required for ski touring safely in the Scottish mountains.
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.
