Winter Skills Course, Scotland or North Wales

Our Winter Skills courses take place in either the Glencoe/Fort William area of the Scottish Highlands or Snowdonia. 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 hill-walking 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 three 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 covered are listed below:

• Winter Route Planning
• Avalanche awareness
• Winter navigation
• Crampon technique
• Ice axe use
• Equipment choice
• Emergency procedures

A walking axe and crampons can be provided. Boots must be hired if you do not have your own.


Glencoe/Fort WIlliam:
12th-14th January

“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.”
