Introductory Snow & Ice

Making the transition from summer walker to the winter fells requires a step change in skills. Accelerate you skills and experience with a solid base of new winter knowledge. The weather and conditions can be fickle. We are there to raise your awareness of  the decisions required to safely climb peaks and open up a winter wonderland of mountains.

New skills to focus on would include:

  • Handling an Ice axe
  • Using crampons
  • Clothing & kit
  • Safety & survival
  • Winter navigation & weather.

We’d want no more than six people to one instructor on such a day out.
