Winter Skills Course, North Wales or Scotland

Our Winter Skills courses take place in either Snowdonia or the Scottish Highlands. The winter environment is a spectacular place but not one to be underestimated. If you have a love for the mountains, have done some summer hillwalking and now want to learn the skills to allow you to safely enjoy the mountains in winter, this is the course for you. This course is available in a two or five day option.


As with all of our courses we have a flexible approach to cater for individual needs and weather conditions but examples of aspects usually covered are listed below:

• Crampon technique
• Ice axe arresting
• Avalanche awareness
• Winter navigation
• Snow shelters
• Route Planning
• Equipment choice

“Having now been both instructed on my ML training and assessed on my ML assessment by Lou, I would without hesitation recommend her to anyone looking for instruction or guiding in the outdoors. Calm, approachable and a good sense of humour. Lou was understanding of gaps in my knowledge base and helped to encourage me to work on areas I required to pass my mountain leader award. I would love to work with Lou again in the future.”
