Our five-day winter skills course, based in Aviemore, Scotland is designed to equip you with the skills to become independent in the mountains in Scottish winter and further afield. It will give you the techniques, skill and confidence to explore safely with the knowledge that if conditions deteriorate then, you can look after yourself. We also try and take in some summits during the course and if conditions are favourable we will spend the night in a snow hole.
