What to Expect

You'll cover winter weather, winter navigation, avalanche, and what to do in an emergency. We'll also show you crampon and ice axe techniques, and also give you guidance on winter clothing and personal comfort. You'll get plenty of time to consolidate your new skills in the mountains, taking in the stunning Snowdonia winter scenery. The Welsh winter can be fickle, and snow and ice conditions cannot be guaranteed. Throughout the course we'll take a flexible approach to the programme to make the best possible use of the prevailing conditions. If there is no snow the course will still run.
