Winter Skills & Mountaineering

The step up to winter walking and mountaineering can seem huge. Let me help you on your journey to being more confident. I can help you with navigation, avalanche avoidance and all the skills you need to move safely around the mountains when they have their white coat on.

Winter Skills

Learn the basics so you can go out hill walking throughout the year. I'll teach you how to use ice axe and crampons, how to adapt your navigation in a white out and how to plan a winter day out including how to avoid avalanches.

I can do this in Snowdonia or Scotland so get in contact to discuss your options.

Winter Mountaineering

Winter mountaineering is heading to slightly steeper ground than on a skills course. We can teach you all the skills you need and may get a rope out to look after you on more exposed terrain. We will try to summit some mountains via more exciting routes, up ridges and gully's. 

You'll gain knowledge of avalanche avoidance, improve your movement when wearing crampons and get better at navigating.
