Cairngorms National Park - Starting in Aviemore
Join us in the amazing Cairngorms National Park for a comprehensive and fun Winter Skills Course.
A four day course really enables you to learn the skills and put them into practice. By the end of the course we'd really like you to think you could plan any winter walking adventure and execute it on your own.
Over the course of 4 days we would aim to cover:
Winter Kit - What you need and why you need it.
Using Ice Axe and Crampons, including ice axe arrest
Winter Navigation (and lots of it)
Planning a winter walk and executing your own plan
Emergency Bivouac procedures
Understanding weather forecasts
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 4 Day courses can be arranged if this is what you would prefer.
