Winter Walking Course - Age 16yrs+

Winter Walking

Excited for winter…. Or maybe a little bit nervous…. Or just want to escape the Christmas preparations – Join our experienced winter mountain leader for a day to remember in the Scottish mountains.

Planning to summit a Munroe, this day trip is all about having a great day on the Scottish mountains, depending on conditions you may experience walking in snow, but even if there is no snow the day will spend time looking at preparing yourself and your equipment for winter.

Winter and its short days, mean that walking in darkness is very likely, this day will be no exception and we have planned this day to take advantage of this. Under the watchful eyes of your experienced guide you have the chance to experience moving from day into night and gain the skills to feel confident when moving across the hills in the dark.

Key skills that will be covered include:

  • Safety equipment and what to carry
  • Weather and route planning
  • Navigation
  • Ice axe use (If snow)
  • Winter weather and avalanche considerations
  • Walking in darkness
