Winter Skills

DSC08382.jpg

An introduction to winter mountaineering is probably one of the most important courses that you might take. We spend the two days (recommended minimum) looking at the key skills below designed to create independent mountaineers. We would stress that this is just an introduction to the skills and that experience plays a vital role, we deliver the skills that allow you to head out and then develop those skills and experience further. 

Course Outline 

This introductory course aims to cover the essential skills for travel in the winter mountains. Covering the core skills, ideally spread over two days, it is a comprehensive course designed to give you the best start in independent winter mountaineering. The following areas are covered.
