A wild start to our winter courses #winterskills #wintermountaineering #skitouring

16th December 2018

Yesterday was a wild, wild day with winds of over 100mph over the summits- not the ideal start for our winter courses.

We did attempt to venture out but progress was too difficult and the risks too high.

Todays weather made up for everything and our winter skills team, uni winter mountaineering duo and ski touring keen-bean all enjoyed some excellent conditions. 

Next week is looking a bit wild at times. Make sure you keep up to date with avalanche and weather forecasts if you're planning to head out.

Winter courses

Great day Me and friends had a winter mountaineering skills day with Matt & Graham. There knowledge in the area was fantastic. Teaching us the safety we needed whilst being in the mountains in a practical and theoretical setting, being able to implement when out in the mountains. Personally, with having a physical disability, I found that they were great. Letting me develop my skills individually whilst supporting me at the right time. Overall, great safe day out in the mountains with some excellent guides.
