Winter Walking Skills

Winter is magnificent in the Scottish Highlands, adding an extra element of challenge to being out on the hills. Gain the skills to meet the challenge whilst enjoying journeying through the hills. Usually run as either a two or five-day course we will aim to cover as much as possible including:

-Gear, kit & organisation for Winter

-Use of boot, axe and crampons for security

-Stopping a slip and a slide (ice axe arrest)

-Winter navigation

-Weather & Avalanche awareness

-Emergency snow shelters

DATES: To suit you, or look at our Upcoming Events for any open/scheduled courses

PRICE: See info under "Bookings" section


You will have done some summer hillwalking and are keen for the challenge of winter. A decent level of fitness to deal with ~6 hours on the hills each day would be beneficial.
