An alpine prep course will get you a head start on your trip to the Alps, by learning some new skills or brushing up on some old ones you’ll already be one step ahead.
The Alps can be an intimidating and overwhelming place, it’s a tough place to learn so the more you know before you go, the more you’ll get out of your trip. Whether you’re aiming to do something like the Cosmiques Arete or just want to know how to move safely over glacial terrain this course will help get you on the right track.
On this Alpine Prep course, we will look at how to move quickly and efficiently with the rope, crevasse rescue, what kit to take, good first routes etc, and you’ll leave feeling slick and ready for your amazing adventures!
Normally the first day would be spent out in the mountains looking at various skills, before putting them all into practice on a long mountain day out on day two, perhaps linking scrambles and climbs in the Ogwen Valley.
