Have you ever fancied just getting out in the Winter Mountains to sample the delights and the challenge of gaining the Summit of a Mountain coated in Snow and Ice?Or wish to take some incredible photographs of Sunrises/Sunsets from an Eagle's view? These Single Day Journeys are suitable for hill-fit Individuals (It can be tough going up there), and destinations like Ben Nevis , The Mamores and Glen Coe offer different levels of difficulty, though on the bigger days there is a chance of being out in the dark at some point...Upto 6 people can comfortably travel together in this environment.

Our 2 Day Winter Skills Courses are designed for you to be well on the way to being proficient in Safe Winter Mountain Travel. Hopefull we will bag a Munro or 2, Buachaille Etive Mor or Bidean Nam Bian for example.

    During our time together, we will cover :-

Use of the Ice Axe for personal and group safety / Crampon Technique / Coping with a variety of Terrain / Navigation and Associated Hazards / Avalanche awareness / Weather Interpretation / Emergency Shelters, plus more...

  This Course can run with upto 6 people.   

 

 Navigating in Full-On Winter conditions can sometimes feel very stressful, so this 2 Day Course aims to make you feel much more confident to deal with winter-specific conditions. This is likely to run in the Glen Coe area.

    All the usual Summer Nav Techniques will be refreshed, but with added spice,  plus lots of cheeky little tricks to keep life from being "too exciting".

  Upto 6 people can be with us.

 

Already done a Winter Skills course and want to gain more experience under safe guidance? Why not try the 3 day bolt-on. The first morning would be used to brush-up those skills, and the next two and a half days to give them a really high shine...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High Winter Camping is the ability to camp comfortably almost anywhere you like without the usual "home comforts", and is an ideal opportunity to spend the hours waiting to get that perfect photo of the Landscape or local Wildlife ... Travelling by foot with all your equipment on your back, to a remote Coastal Beach, a high Summit, or anywhere inbetween... These trips are tailored for your needs.

   Why not combine this with our photography trips!

Winter mountaineering is the next step up from Winter Hillwalking. It can require a steady head, but gives an exceptional amount of freedom to roam and explore steeper terrain. Ledge Route on Ben Nevis or  the Aonach Eagach Traverse are great examples of Mountaineering Routespossible...

    This environment requires experience in Winter Hillwalking,including the use of Axe and Crampons, and Outdoor Rock Climbing. Having a Winter Skills Course"under your belt" is recommended.

   The ratio for this to remain manageable is a maximum of 2 people for each Guide. 

Winter Climbing is an incredible experience that will want you coming back for more... Winter routes here are worthy of the effort required, and Classic routes such as Point 5 Gully on Ben Nevis has World Class status !

 This environment requires experience in Winter Hillwalking,including the use of Axe and Crampons, and Outdoor Rock Climbing. Having a Winter Skills Course"under your belt" is recommended.
