This course will be run in a ratio of 1:4 for training and 1:2 for guiding by qualified instructors from Aviemore.

This Winter Mountaineering course looks at the skills needed for the middle ground between winter walking and winter climbing, essentially winter scrambling. Many of Scotland’s mountains have steep ground, sharp ridges and deep gullies that make amazing days out and offer a little more challenge than the walking routes.
We will look at the movement skills and technical skills needed to safely travel over this more challenging terrain, equipping you to go and have your own mountaineering adventure in the future.
A specific kit list will be issued by email closer to the time.
