About the Private Winter Skills 2 Day Course

Private Winter Skills 2 Day Course

Plan your own dates and location with our 2 day winter skills course. N.B Acommodation is NOT included.

Learning the skills to move around securely in the winter hills in Scotland is an essential part in the development of personal outdoor skills. As with many aspirations, if you don’t try it you’ll never know what you’re missing…

Highly recommended for aspiring winter mountain walkers, this is a detailed practical course in winter techniques. Winter Skills Day Course

It consists of practice in the safe movement on snow slopes, use of ice axe for support and arresting a slip, step kicking and cutting, fitting and walking in crampons in a variety of terrain.

Further practice of what to do when, is gained on a mountain walk, and evening sessions cover topics like equipment, winter hazards, snow structure and avalanche awareness. Sounds a lot and it is but its a great way to spend couple of winter days, its hard work at times but fun as well.
