Event description

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 these 4 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.

INTRODUCTION TO SCOTTISH WINTER SKILLS

This is an essential day for anyone who wants to enjoy Scotland's mountains in winter conditions.  This is a full day on the hill and will consist of looking at equipment for winter hill walking and skills such as 'using the boot as a tool', cramponing techniques, walking with an axe and self-arrest.
