This is for a bespoke course, on a date to suit you (Subject to availability)


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

  • Avalanche awareness

  • Understanding weather forecasts


This course is best hosted in Scotland, however if the conditions are OK then it can be run in the Lake District. The price listed is for instruction only. 

If you want to explore the option of adding in a winter camping element then please let us know.
