#Winter Walking

Our one day Introduction to Winter Walking skills course is the perfect way to start learning about the winter environment and hillwalking in Scotland. Aimed at beginners with no previous winter walking experience, we'll guide you step by step and teach you what's required to stay safe and have fun in the mountains. 

What's covered

- Personal equipment and what to carry in your rucksack
- Understanding mountain weather forecasts
- Avalanche forecasting and awareness
- Safe and efficient movement on snow
- Using crampons
- Using an ice axe for self arrests and cutting steps
- What to do in an emergency
 

These fundamental skills will give you the confidence to walk safely in the mountains by yourself.

As with all our courses, you'll be led by a qualified and experienced guide.
