This course is designed as an introduction to the skills required to venture onto the UK's winter mountains and is suited to those with some previous mountain walking or climbing experience. Courses are run in Snowdonia, the Cairngorms and Ben Nevis area, and are based on practical sessions in a mountain setting - covering winter navigation, the assessment of conditions, avalanche awareness, crampon and ice axe skills,  along with route choice and the decision making process.

A typical course starts with an introduction, issue of equipment and safety briefing, and goes through the preparation process for a winter route, including  a look at the weather and conditions, equipment and clothing, etc. The hard skills are then looked at progressively during a mountain day - map and compass, avalanche awareness, ice axe and crampon skills, rope work etc. - making the most of the weather / conditions and short daylight hours.

The final day of these courses would further consolidate the skills learnt and explore the decision making process during the completion of a "named" route.

This course is run at a maximum ratio of 1:4, all technical equipment, including winter boots can be supplied.
