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
An Introduction into Avalanche Awareness.
One Day Winter Skills Course
If you are looking to book a day of guided walking that occurs within the next 72 hours please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01900 336795.
It is very rare that we are unable to provide a leader for an event, but as I'm sure you can appreciate the winter months can provide some harsh weather conditions and we will only take a booking if we deem it safe to head out.
Winter walking is not only physically tougher, but technically too. In order for us to stay safe on our adventure you will be required to have additional technical walking equipment in the form of a Walking Axe, Walking Crampons and Winter Mountaineering Boots (Summer boots do not suffice). We have a hire pool of all these items, so if you require them please head to the shop and add the various items you require in to the basket. Please ensure you add on what size boots you require.
