Do you find yourself looking up at the snow covered peaks wondering whether you'd enjoy being up there? Wonder whether you'd be capable, or what it'd take to be up there safely? Our one day winter skills courses are an ideal taster of winter walking and will give you a perfect glimpse into what winter mountaineering is all about. These one day courses are also suited well to those looking to refresh their skills. The course would last in the region of 6-7 hours and we'd look to cover:


  • Winter Kit - What you need and why you need it.
  • Using Ice Axe and Crampons
  • Winter Navigation
  • An Introduction into Avalanche Awareness.


There will be a maximum of 6 people per instructor on the course to ensure quality of instruction. If you have a larger party then please contact us and we can see what we can do for you. 


Private 1 Day courses can be arranged if this is what you would prefer.
