SCOTTISH WINTER SKILLS: TWO DAY COURSE
8th - 9th February 2020 and 22nd- 23rd February 2020
This two day course in Scotland will teach you essential winter skills including: navigation, use of crampons and ice axes, movement in winter conditions, avalanche awareness and obviously a great time exploring the Scottish highlands.
During the course we will venture out to the Cairngorms or Glencoe area. The first day will cover all the basic skills needed to travel in the Scottish winter environment. On the second day we put those skills into practice and ascend a summit or two in the local area. Everyone in the group will get a chance to navigate and practice winter skills so that they are confident in doing so in the future. The course is open to everyonebut if you have any questions please get in touch.
The course does not include accommodation however we can recommend places to stay for people with different budgets. Equipment is not provided but there are places to hire ice axes and crampons if you need them. Once booked you will receive a full kit list and itinerary.
