Scottish Ski Touring Courses

Highland Instinct have over 15 years of ski touring-specific experience in Scotland's mountains. Our staff are accredited by the Mountain Training Association and Snowsport Scotland governing bodies. We lead introduction to ski touring courses, provide tailor-made skills courses, and can be engaged to lead you on ski touring days out.

A range of hillcraft / skills modules are available, and a combination can be delivered on the hill as part of a skills-focussed day out. These include: introduction to ski touring in Scotland; navigation for ski touring; techniques for moving in Scotland's winter mountains; methods for planning a successful Scottish ski tour; safety on steep ground; ski touring ropework and anchors; avalanche awareness, and an introduction to avalanche rescues. We are also able to build aspects of these modules into ski touring days out.

Our ski touring experience days see us seek to find the best available snow and to create a fun and interesting day out. We are familiar with all Scottish mountain regions, but specialise in the Cairngorm region. We will be pleased to share our intimate knowledge of the area - including lesser known aspects of their cultural and geographic history - with you.

Please contact our director, Jamie Johnston, for availability and pricing.
