Ski Touring & Mountaineering

Ski touring is the most satisfying and efficient way of exploring and travelling through the mountains and for gaining access to climbs.

Our Ski Mountaineering Courses will equip you with the skills necessary for touring safely in the Scottish mountains as well as most of the essential skills for touring in Nordic or Alpine regions.


Our ski touring days are based from Active Aviemore and our 2 & 5 day courses from Craigower Lodge. We will ski mainly in the Cairngorms 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 5 day course there may be scope for an overnight expedition.
