About this Event

The Course

Our two day Winter Skills Course is aimed at giving you the foundations necessary to safely explore the Scottish hills or any snow covered peaks in all their snowy majesty. Based out of Fort William with Ben Nevis and Glencoe as our backdrop we will help you prepare for the challenges and exciting possibilities of the winter environment.

During the two days we aim to discuss winter kit, learn how to use boots, crampons and ice axe in the most safe and efficient ways possible, practice self-arrest techniques, look at navigation and get to grips with avalanche awareness and emergency procedures. We'll look at all of these important skills for experiencing winter to the fullest whilst exploring the local mountains and putting the skills into practice with a fully qualified and experienced instructor.

Kit list

Kit

Winter boots, crampons and an ice axe will be required for winter skills. If you already own these, fantastic. If not we can help you hire equipment - just let us know in advance. If you would like to purchase your own before the course we would be more than happy to advise what might be best. We also have some kit which you may be able to hire for free; please enquire.

We will provide a helmet for each day. If you are not used to this technical equipment your guide will ensure it is used in the correct manner. We are here to make your experience as safe and fun as possible.

Please see the Kit List for a comprehensive list of what you will need to bring.

Meeting

You will meet your instructor on the morning of your start date. Your instructor will be in contact the week before your start date to discuss final arrangements and the prevailing weather conditions.
