Winter Skills update December 18



Lupine LogoWinter Skills Update

Hi winter list 

Just a quick note to say that we have updated our winters skills page for the 2015 / 2016 season.

Three day winter skills course dates

quick pit.jpgWe have just 2 dates advertised for the 3 day course in Glen Coe. We may well add a third in March so if you are interested in a March date then let me know. The programme for the course will depend a bit on the weather but we usually spend the first two days teaching skills in a small area and then put it all together on the third day on a longer walk and try to grab a peak. If you only wanted to come for the Saturday and Sunday then you can do for £170.

Dates Location Instructor Price per person

Adhoc Days

nav practice 005Winter in England and Wales is pretty fickle so we don't plan for days in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales or Snowdonia. If we get a good amount of snow (or a promising forecast) we'll email this list with some suggestions of day walks or weekend skills courses south of the border.


If you want to hire a Winter Mountain leader for a day or two the price is £150 per day plus £20 per person. If you have dates in mind and would like us to put an email out on this list then let us know and we'll see if we can share that cost between more of you. We currently have 80 people on this list but will send an email out to our main list shortly to boost those numbers.

If you don't have the kit it doesn't matter, we can lend you and ice axe, crampons that will fit sturdy walking boots (of which we have a selection) and goggles.
