It is highly likely that between October and December there will not be winter conditions. However, this can be a great time of year to get our heads in gear for winter and practise many of the skills we will need for the winter. So please do not be put off by the lack of snow, we will cover plenty of skills that will get you ready for the mountains when they are ready to put their white cover on. 

Many winter skills can be adapted for us to practise in non winter conditions. A day or a weekend is a great way to check you have the right kit, that you know how it all works together. To winterise you navigation, and to plan a journey that is safe using some avalanche forecasts and the weather forecast. Practise gets our minds in gear and you will feel less rusty when you get out in the snow. 

Let me know whether you are a walker, scrambler or climber and what your winter aspirations are. This will allow me to tailor the skills we cover to your needs. 

I have a veriety of dates available between now and December. Get in contact to find out more.
