Includes Accommodation and Food
Designed for those with some summer hill-walking experience who want to travel in the British mountains confidently at any time of year. This course will teach you the necessary skills to stay safe in the most demanding and unforgiving winter months. Over the 5-day course, our qualified and experienced instructors will cover the following in detail:
Navigating in the winter environment
Avalanche awareness and avoidance
Weather and Hazardous conditions
Route planning, guidebook interpretation
Correct use of Crampons and Ice Axes
Movement on snow and ice
The course will be very practical with an emphasis on learn through doing. Each morning we will assess the weather/avalanche forecasts and plan a suitable route before heading into the Cairngorms and surrounding mountains. For the first 2 days, you will learn essential winter skills, how to use ice axe and crampons, self-arrest practice on steep ground, navigating in winter conditions and dealing with survival situations. As the course progresses, we will plan longer days to include several classic Scottish Munros if weather conditions allow. So if this is your first foray into the Winter environment or you have limited experience and would like to learn new skills, this course is ideal for you.
