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 based on the approx. number of members each club has.
Book online, registered members only
If clubs would like to manage the course booking at a committee level and make a group booking as a club official, please note, we require the following information at the time of booking for each course participant:
