A winter special broadcast live from Cairngorm Mountain...

We've got features on how to start winter climbing, a new series of ski mountaineering races, why landscape photographers love the snow, the weekend's weather from one of Scotland's top mountain forecasters and why would you want to climb in the eye of the storm?

Plus, Mark Stephen goes out in Glen Callater with retired head stalker Peter Fraser and photographer Glyn Slatterley. And climbing a new winter route just for Out of Doors.
