Winter Mountaineering Courses
Throughout the winter season we run winter mountaineering courses in Scotland in the Cairngorms, Glencoe and on Ben Nevis. We may also visit other parts of Scotland such as Torridon and the Isle of Skye. If conditions permit, we also offer them in the Lake District and Snowdonia.
We aim these winter mountaineering courses at those who already have some experience as winter mountain walkers and who want to take their skills to the next level. These clients generally want to learn how to deal with more varied and steeper ground in winter. Typically this involves climbing some of Scotland’s exhilarating but exposed mountain ridges, or technically easy routes up steep faces and gullies.
We can adapt these courses to suit anyone, from those just starting to venture onto steeper terrain in the winter mountains, to those preparing for their Winter Mountain Leader qualification.
Depending on exact aims and locations, there is usually a maximum ratio of 1:4 on this course. For ascending graded mountaineering routes involving the use of ropes, the maximum ratio is 1:2.
