Details

Walking in the mountains in winter can offer the most rewarding of days and a sense of achievement in potentially more challenging conditions. Planning appropriately, moving safely and being able to cope with the constantly changing environmental conditions that snowfall will bring to even the most familiar of locations, is key to enjoying the winter mountain environment.

Over 2 days, new skills and knowledge will be introduced and consolidated during journeys into the winter environment. Learning that can be covered includes:

  • Getting to grips with winter weather and avalanche forecasts
  • Appropriate route planning for winter mountain journeys
  • Confidence using winter equipment, boots and clothing
  • Moving securely on snow covered ground
  • Essential use of ice axe and crampons
  • Understanding avalanches and planning considerations
  • Winter navigation strategies and confidence

And what you learn on these courses can be applied to walking in Scotland as well as other British mountains – a whole new, white world awaits!
