Winter Skills Courses

Learning the skills to move around securely on the winter hills in Scotland is an essential part in the development of personal outdoor skills. The day course should be the absolute minimum course for those new to winter hill walking, but is also great as an annual refresher. You shouldn't wait until you are careering out of control down an icy slope, to wonder what you could be doing to stop yourself. This course gives you lots of practice at preventing or solving the problem.

As with many aspirations, if you don’t try it, you’ll never know what you are missing…and it’s great fun too.

These courses are offered as Private Winter Skills Days and Private Winter Skills weekends for small groups up to 6 people.
