Alpine Skills Course Alpine Skills Course
Alpine Skills (simulated conditions)
In our Alpine Skills Training (simulated conditions) you will learn how to be self-sufficient while travelling on snow and ice. This course aims to provide you with the necessary skills you will need to summit in winter conditions, and it is recommended for people who wish to climb in areas such as the Alps, the Andes, the Himalaya and all the high mountain ranges of the world. The course is also suitable for those who wish to increase their general fitness and endurance in the outdoors.

We include a practical lesson on climbing equipment, and other gear required such as your climbing harness, and we train you to be proficient in the use of crampons, ice axes, ski poles and other climbing equipment. You will also learn specific techniques used in glacier travel, crevasse rescue, fixed rope techniques and abseiling in the comfort of controlled, simulated weather conditions.

We recommend that you pack as per our list for the expedition to Mount Elbrus. Hire and purchase of necessary equipment is available at the Mountain Lodge. You can test any new equipment you have and ask us any questions you may have regarding your current clothing and equipment. By undertaking this course, you will increase your knowledge and proficiency before going climbing in the harsh conditions associated with expeditions and winter mountaineering.

Skills covered include:

Use and fitting of equipment: boots, helmet, harness, emergency pack, ski poles, ropes, ascenders, slings, Prusicks, chocks, cams
