Ski Touring and Ski Mountaineering in Scotland

Ski Touring in Scotland is probably the best way to see the hills in winter. Ski touring or ski mountaineering is a great way to cover long distances rather than on foot. From our base in Aviemore we can explore the surrounding hills in any direction.

Our ski mountaineering guides have been working in the area for over 15 years and know where all the secret powder stashes are hidden!
