Winter Skills Courses Overview

Winter walking in the UK is an amazing experience.  Sometimes you will experience blue skies and sunshine with views to rival the Alps or greater ranges. At other times, the onslaught of snow, rain and wind requires that you have the right winter skills just to survive.  Either way under our careful instruction, winter is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Whether you are a summer walker thinking of wielding an ice axe for the first time, a seasoned winter walker looking to take things steeper or heading out to the greater ranges and you want to prepare yourself we can help you achieve your aims.

If the standard courses below don’t fit what you have in mind, just contact the office and we will help you make a plan.

Courses are delivered by friendly, highly qualified and experienced instructors who will create a supportive environment to guide you at your own pace in learning new skills. The courses are great for established groups who are looking to upskill themselves and whilst we normally base ourselves in the Glencoe / Fort William area can also be delivered as required in the Cairngorms.
