The winter mountains in Scotland provide some of the most demanding and rewarding mountaineering conditions in the UK. 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 west coast near Fort William. 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.
The Fort William area is ideal for winter courses in the Highlands. In recent years the Cairngorms had lean winter conditions with little snow while the Lochaber area had a lot more. It is also easier to travel to Creag Meagaidh and the Cairngorms if the conditions happen to be better there.
Just select the date and then the 2 or 5 day package at 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
