Winter Walking, Mountaineering and Climbing Courses

Intro To Winter Mountaineering Courses

Well shortly after Christmas I am starting my winter campaign, many years ago I started my Winter Mountain Leader Qualification, sadly I have never finished the number of ‘Scottish’ Winter Days to come back for the assessment. As part of that process I am looking for clients to guide out on the hill and help turn them into solid winter walkers, mountaineers and climbers.

These days out could occur in Wales but preferably Scotland, and I can cover anything from Basic cramponing and Ice axe skills for simple walking though to managing steep winter terrain, as well as the basics of avalanche awareness, not to mention a chance for you to brush up on your navigation skills. If you’d like to come out for a day or maybe more, then please contact me via the Snowdonia Mountain Guides website.

I am although not certified at present I am currently insured through Perkin’s Slade for these activities, and I would love to take you out on the hill for free but despite not being qualified I believe that I will give you a very enjoyable, safe and educational day out. I have about ten years of winter mountaineering experience, both in the UK and further a field; I have been an active volunteer for the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team for the past few years rescuing folk both in summer and winter conditions; and on top of this I am a very active summer mountaineering instructor and climbing coach.

So in exchange for a daily rate that YOU decide, I will meet you up North, and teach you the skills you need to become an independent Scottish Winter Mountaineer, and if you don’t like the service or feel you didn’t learn anything then you can have your money back.
