Winter Skills Day (Age 16yrs+)
Not sure about two days winter walking? Or maybe you can’t make the second day?
Attend day one only, ideal for a refresher or as an introduction, and this gives you the freedom to book onto the second day at a later date.
Working on a non-residential basis we are able to take advantage of the best weather and venues Scotland has to offer.
This is a very practical day with the emphasis on giving you the skills, knowledge and strategies to enable you to plan and enjoy your own adventures. With this focus we aim to do more than just teach you the ‘how to’ of winter skills, your instructor will continually share their decision making process and give you the tools to travel safely in winter.
