The days will involve a high top, either a Munro or one of our finer Corbetts, so you will need to have previous hill walking experience. Once the snow gets firm enough for winter tactics to come in to play folk need to have the skills to cope with conditions. Our Intro to Scottish winter skills course is recommended for anyone needing to learn the basics or improve rusty technique.
All winter High Tops are weather dependent. If there is a high avalanche risk on the slopes we’re planning to go on to we will change the route or the hill. If storm winds are blowing we may have to take in a shorter, lower hill. Walks in December will include an element of winter skills if conditions allow. This will be to refresh winter movement technique, it’s not a comprehensive winter skills coaching session. Folk that need that should go on a winter skills course.

We kicking off our winter High Tops season with a visit to a local favourite. This Munro is on the easy side, even in winter. This will allow us time to revisit some winter skills on the hill.
