The Objectives

You'll discover the delights of the Scottish winter mountains and develop the skills and confidence to get out there hillwalking.


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect

We'll take you progressively through the skills of winter hillwalking. Venues and day to day activities are weather and snow•dependent and decisions regarding the exact day's programme will be decided by the course director each morning. The whole group will meet for a briefing, allowing you to share the decision making process with experienced instructors. We'll aim to cover the following topics, incorporating them into mountain journeys, hopefully taking in some of the classic peaks by some of the easier routes

Use of Ice axe and crampons

Ice axe arrest

Winter navigation

Avalanche risk assessment and avoidance

Emergency snow shelters

Terrain, route choice, and decision making

We make full use of the evenings by offering a number of technical lectures which re•enforce and expand upon the daytime activities.

Experience Required

No previous experience on snow is necessary.
