We recognise many women prefer learning in a female only envronment and have tailored a women only weekend winter skills course, which are delivered by our wonderful female guides.
Our two day Winter Skills course develops the essential hill walking skills required for staying safe during winter. It focuses on personal movement skills to prevent taking a slip, cramponing, using an ice axe, self arresting, winter navigation, snow pack analysis, avalanche avoidance, emergency procedures and understanding the winter environment.
These courses are all based out on the hill and we run them from Aviemore in the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.
This is an excellent course which will leave you with the confidence and knowledge to safely go winter hill walking.
The weather and snow conditions can affect the order in which skills are taught meaning the itinerary can sometimes change.
You can download more course information here.
