Access to subsidised mountain skills courses and lectures is one of the key benefits of being a Mountaineering Scotland club member. As well as being able to book a place on our general course programme, we organise training activities tailored especially for our university and college clubs.
This training weekend will give participants a strong grounding in a range of essential skills for venturing into Scotland's mountains in winter that they can build upon in the future and share with fellow club members.
We will cover route-planning, navigation, winter safety, avalanche avoidance, walking with ice axe and crampons, ice axe self-arrest, and much more (conditions permitting). It will not involve any use of ropes. The staffing ratio is 1:6.
Please read our booking and cancellation conditions before booking your place - course fees are non-refundable.
Our student courses are increasingly popular, so to avoid disappointment, we are introducing a new way of booking some events this year, to allocate places fairly.
