About the Event
This course is aimed at hillwalkers or summer mountaineers who would like to be able to enjoy the hills year round, whatever the weather or conditions.
It will give you the skills to begin to move around the hills and mountains during the winter with confidence and competence.
The course will include:
- 2 days out in the Scottish hills
- Personal kit selection and appropriate use of kit
- Route planning and Avalanche Awareness
- Winter navigation techniques including compass bearings, pacing, distance and timing.
THIS COURSE DOES NOT COVER the use of crampons and ice axes in full as it assumes a prior knowledge. If you would like to learn about this in detail too, then book onto a Winter Skills course!
