Winter skills & guiding
Scottish winter is one of our favourite times of the year when the mountains are transformed into a snow and ice clad mountains. Chris Bonnington was quoted as saying ‘there is no such thing as winter walking only mountaineering’ which highlighted the seriou nature of the UK’s winter mountains.
Our instruction courses focus on delivering the skills necessary for safe winter mountain travel. We deliver these courses throughout the Scottish Highlands with a focus in the Ben Nevis and Glencoe area the Cairngorms and North West Highlands.
We also deliver guided winter summits, in either your intended area or we can develop one to five day guided mountain journeys combining summits with the necessary skills and equipment needed to tackle them. With over twenty years exerience leading and instructing in the Scottish Highlands we have an intimate knowledge of the wild mountain spaces on offer.
We also specialise in guided ascents of the UK’s highest mountain Ben Nevis. We can provide both the guidance and also the ice axe and crampons needed during the winter months.
