This will be our 5th year delivering this popular course and we will again be teaming up with UKML to offer one of the best winter skills courses out there. Designed for anyone who wants to improve their winter skills knowledge and enjoyment. This course will teach you the necessary skills to stay safe in the most demanding and unforgiving winter months. Our qualified, experienced and friendly instructors will teach you everything you need to know, including:

-Equipment and clothing selection and correct usage
-Safe and effective use of winter boots, crampons and ice axe in a variety of terrain, weather and snow conditions
-Improved personal movement on snow and ice
-Arresting a slip
-Ascending, descending and traversing
-Navigating in the winter environment
-Avalanche awareness, interpretation and avoidance
-Weather forecasts and interpretation
-Hazardous conditions and emergency procedures
-Emergency snow shelters
-Seasonal variations - where to go and when
-Route planning and guidebook interpretation
-Decision-making on and off the hill

Based in the majestic Cairngorms, the course will be very practical with an emphasis on learning through doing. Initially, we focus on introducing and honing core winter skills, before tackling more complex techniques. We aim to improve your awareness and understanding of the decision-making process involved in the planning process. As the course progresses, we will plan longer days to include several classic Scottish Munros if weather conditions allow. So whether this is your first foray into the winter environment, or you would like to improve existing skills, this course is ideal for you.
