Event description
Join Mountaineering Scotland's Ben Gibson on a journey into the winter mountains to find out how to plan for a great day out in winter.

About this event

With our increasingly unpredictable climate and weather, a flexible approach and sound winter skills are essential when it comes to enjoying quality, safe days out in the mountains, whether you walk, climb or ski.

Qualified mountaineering instructor Ben will share his own experiences (and mistakes!) as an active climber, walker, skier and hill runner with a focus on the crucial ingredients to success including:

  • Planning and decision making
  • How to find and interpret weather and avalanche information
  • The types of kit, footwear and equipment to consider as we move into winter
  • The different skills to master before you head to the hills in winter
  • What to do when things don't go to plan

and some top tips so that you can get the best your of your time outdoors.

A great introduction for anyone new to winter hills and useful refresher for more experienced hill-goers, with a chance to pick up some prizes and ask your own questions along the way.

Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to local mountain rescue teams.

This event is supported by Tiso.

Doors open at 6.30pm for 7pm start.

Please note that all attendees are required to wear a face covering throughout the event.
