Winter Mountain Skills Courses
Winter Skills Course
A winter skills course that is designed to teach you basic skills for winter hill walking. You will cover winter equipment, cramponing techniques, ice axe arrest, some basic winter navigation, route choice, emergency shelters and avalanche awareness.
Do you want to get to grips with the more challenging peaks in the winter? If so this course aims to give you the skills to become a competent winter mountaineer. We will work to develop skills on steeper snow and scrambling terrain.
I will be based in the North Wales for most of winter 2019, but will have a few dates available in Scotland so please get in contact to discuss if you wish to go to Scotland, if I am not available I can recommend like minded MIC's who are in Scotland.
If you fancy some winter skills or mountaineering in Wales I will be here for most of the winter keeping an eye on conditions. Wales has some amazing climbs and mountaineering journeys close to the road, now we just need to hope for plenty of snow. Dates for courses are shown on the course pages.
