Pioneering practitioners in a series of seasonal escapades, the family-led team at Active Outdoor Pursuits have over 12 years’ experience in conquering the Cairngorms’ toughest challenges, from kayaking and climbing to skiing and snowboarding.
Kitted out in snow-proof garb, novice skiers can learn how to fasten and walk in ski boots before taking to the snow-covered slopes of the Cairngorms. Expert instructors will take frost fans through the basic principles and manoeuvres, letting them sleekly slide downhill, swivelling and spinning as they progress from snowplough to leaf and garland turns. Snow-skimmers can opt to extend their winter escapade by spending the night before in the picturesque village of Newtonmore, while the keen can also add an extra day’s tuition for a £29 supplement .
