We offer one and two-day introductory winter skills courses that are geared towards active summer hill walkers who are keen to learn and develop new skills to help keep themselves and others safe in the winter mountains. We start each day planning a suitable route for the group’s ability and prevailing conditions. Typically, we will cover everything from hazard identification and avoidance, winter navigation, what to carry and how to manage and use your equipment safely, and what to do in an emergency. Expect a challenging and fun-filled day and you won’t be disappointed! Courses can be arranged in the Lake District and Scotland.
* If your booking coincides with unsuitable conditions we will offer an alternative date or a refund if re-booking is not possible.
This course works well with a maximum ratio of 1:6 (instructor to participant) and can be booked for one or two days in duration. This low ratio will ensure you receive quality instruction.
*Our pricing structure is based on a 1:1 ratio, with an additional fee of £20 per day for all extra participants: £180 for one day, or £170 per day for two days. For more details, please see our pricing structure.
