As Autumn in Scotland is in full swing Winter is not far now. It’s only a month or so when you traditionally start getting the first snow in the Scottish hills. We have therefore introduced another great season with 2 day Winter Skills Courses, 5 day Winter Mountaineering Courses and a winter camping on the summit of Ben Nevis.
Last year we have introduced the summit camping on Ben Nevis and have had 2 excellent trips with very different conditions. This year we have 4 of those trips planned but would be happy to extend it. All the camping equipment is included in the price. We are still the only ones offering this kind of service.
As usual we also run the 2 day course every weekend from early January to early April. This will give everyone a chance to join a course and again I don’t think there is anyone out there offering a course every weekend.
The 5 course format has been running since 2011 and is a course with 3 days winter skills and 2 day expedition in the mountains with spending a night in a self-built snowhole. A great adventure to finish off a course.
