Winter Hillwalking and Mountaineering Skills Courses
Winter hillwalking and mountaineering are fantastic ways to enjoy the mountains when they are shrouded in snow and ice. Make no mistake though, the challenges that make exploring the mountains in winter so rewarding also make them a much more dangerous place. A simple slope in summer can become a long and dangerous place to be without the right skills. That same slope could also be ready to avalanche. What Snowdonia Mountain Guides offer is several winter courses from basic winter hillwalking skills in both Wales and Scotland through to more advanced mountaineering skills course. On both of these courses we offer training in the following essential winter skills:
Dependent on your experience and the conditions the course may also include basic snow belays, ascending easy gulles, descending through cornices and constructing emergency shelters. What we do guarentee is that you'll find all our courses both challenging, fun and educational. By the end of it you'll feel a lot more confident to venture out into the mountains in winter.
