Event description

Winter Mountain skills Courses

This winter we are running 4 skills based days on the hill

• Introduction to Scottish winter skills

• Winter navigation

• Avalanche awareness and safe travel techniques

• Ropework for Winter Hill Walkers

Through our courses we hope to give you some of the building blocks that will enable you to enjoy journeying through Scotland’s winter environment. All our skills days stand alone or can be linked to provide progression. Previous experience required for any winter skills course - summer hill walking experience  

Ropework for Winter Hill Walkers 

Snowfall can transform an easy hill walk into a difficult mountain day, creating steep ground and cornices. This course will give you the skills to negotiate this terrain in the context of a winter hill walking expedition. As well as looking at bucket seats, buried axes, snow bollards and body belaying, we will also spend time practising personal movement skills on steep ground.
