Our Winter Expedition Skills course is based in the Glencoe area and involves 2 nights wild camping.
These winter expedition training courses are a great way to prepare for Himalayan and high altitude expeditions. Alongside ascending a number of summits, the course will give you a full range of skills training: crampons and ice axe, packing light, camping in snow, using fixed lines, snow holes and much more. Our leaders have experience of multiple expeditions around the world. Tents and specialist equipment provided. On two of the days you should be prepared to carry 20kg for 2-3 hours per day.
The mountains around Glencoe and Ben Nevis provide some of the best and most reliable winter walking and climbing conditions in Britain suitable for beginner and expert alike. It is the perfect training ground for mountaineering in the Alps or Greater Ranges.
Previous Experience: For the Winter Expedition Skills course all you need is a good level of fitness and enjoyment of long days on the British hills in summer.
