Day 1: Glenridding, Ullswater Day 2: Swirls, Thirlmere
Join us in the amazing Lake District National Park for a comprehensive and fun Winter Skills Course.
Two days of training and instruction provides the opportunity for you to really get to grips with the skills. As there is so much to take in this is our most recommended course.
Throughout the duration of the course we would look to cover (conditions dependent):
Winter Kit - What you need and why you need it.
Using Ice Axe and Crampons
An Introduction into Avalanche Awareness.
Planning a winter walk
Emergency Bivouac procedures
By the end of the two day course you should have the confidence to be planning your very own safe winter walking adventures.
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 2 Day courses can be arranged if this is what you would prefer.
