BASE editorial teamBASE writers and editors who live and breathe adventure every day. We love adventure storytelling as much as we love adventure itself.
Since 1948, deep in the heart of the Cairngorms, Glenmore Lodge has provided opportunities for aspiring mountaineers to develop skills, and gain qualifications, in the harshest of Scottish weather. But in a changing climate, conditions are becoming increasingly volatile.
Witness to unstable weather patterns, the guides who operate there know the environment here like few others, seeking out the best days conditions and scouring the land for the finest snow.
Here, Glenmore Lodge instructors Alex Parmenter and Emma Holgate show us what goes into a leg-burning day of skiing in the notoriously variable Scottish mountains.
