Scottish Intro to Winter Mountaineering & Climbing

This is a full on five day course!

Winter is a special time in the mountains, which require some extra skills above and beyond being a summer climber and mountaineer.

Over the week we’ll recap general skills such as crampon and ice axe use, avalanche awareness and navigation before moving on to winter mountaineering and then winter climbing.

Days 1 & 2 will be on a 1:4 ratio, before moving to 1:2 on the climbing days 3, 4 & 5.

Based out of Aviemore we have easy access to a winter playground where we’ll get you hooked on winter climbing for life!
