SCOTTISH WINTER SKILLS: TWO DAY COURSE

8th - 9th 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 safety. 

Depending on conditions we will plan to venture out in 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 lead and navigate the group so that they are confident in doing so in the future.  

This is a great opportunity to increase your mountain skills, prepare for a bigger challenge such as a 6000 metre peak or enjoy a weekend away!
