Are you a keen hiker, with plenty of summer walking experience, but you’ve always wanted to have a go on snow? These new weekends are designed to teach you the basics of Winter Walking and allow you to explore the mountains all year round!
Getting to know the winter environment is key and we’ll teach you how to stay safe and the techniques you’ll need, such as winter navigation, using ice axes and crampons, how to prevent slips and self-arrests, and even how to plan for a winter day. We’ll keep the groups small too!
"Great course, excellent tuition."
"Excellent, safe and good communication!"
"Course was everything I expected and more, really enjoyed it."
Our instructor, James Woodhouse (MIC) (see right), has extensive expedition experience both in the UK and overseas and is an Associate Instructor at Glenmore Lodge and a course director of both training and assessment for the Summer Mountain Leader (see below demonstrating an arrest on a training course). The Northern Corries provide some of winter’s best adventures for climbers and walkers alike, formed by ancient glaciers and some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland.
