Our two day weekend winter skills courses, based in the Cairngorms, Aviemore, Scotland are designed to give you the fundamental techniques for safe travel in the mountains in winter conditions. We focus on prevention more than cure, looking at suitable personal kit, organisation and appropriate use of what we carry. How to safely plan a day using avalanche and weather forecasts and how to implement them into a safe journey. On snow, we focus on movement skills with solid footwork in ascent and descent, self-belay, step cutting, self-arrest and crampon techniques.
