At Unexplored Scotland, we provide a winter skills course every week from early January till early April. The winter mountains in Scotland provide some of the UK’s most demanding and rewarding mountaineering conditions. Travelling over these hills on high levels often requires a very mature set of multiple skills to ensure a successful and enjoyable day.
Join a fun 2-day or 5-day winter skills course at the Cairngorms near Aviemore. Learn how to use the ice axe, walk with crampons and plan a safe day in the hills with weather and avalanche in mind. We always aim to coach practical skills, which will be useful in future winter outings. The 5-day course also includes a night in a snowhole.
Winter Skills Course in the Cairngorms
Aviemore is ideal for winter courses in the Highlands. The Cairngorms has more guaranteed snow than most other areas in the Highlands and it is less of a walk to get to usable snow.
Select the date and then the 2 or 5 day package on the booking form.
2 Day courses are from the 2nd week of January till the first week of April
5 Day courses are from the 3rd week of January till the end of March
