WINTER SKILLS COURSES

Without a doubt winter is one of the best times of the year to get out and into the hills. On the good days you can get rewarded with the best views you'll ever see, all whilst listening to the crunching of firm snow beneath your crampons. On the bad days when the wind is whipping up snow and you can't see much your skills are put to the test, which brings its own level of satisfaction. Either way that first beer or warm cup of tea once you're off the hill tastes awesome.

In order to have safe days under winter conditions it is vital all your hillwalking skills are up to scratch and it is likely you will pull on a lot of experience from your summer walking adventures too, such as what to wear, where best to stop, what to eat etc. By joining us on a winter skills course we will endeavour to lay strong foundations to enable you to have some brilliant winter experiences of your own. Maybe you just want to go for a nice walk and not have to worry about navigating or planning the route? We can do that too with a day of winter guiding. 

on this page you will find a breakdown of the courses we offer, as well as the dates of scheduled courses and prices for bespoke courses. We operate our courses in the Lake District and can do so in Scotland too. All our leaders are a minimum of Winter Mountain Leader qualified which means you're in safe hands.
