Spring talks for 2023 dates TBC

Heading to the hills this summer? 

Join us online for our interactive spring skills webinars, where Mountaineering Scotland's Mountain Safety Advisor Ben Gibson will share his top tips for beginners and more experienced hillwalkers alike. Ben's talks will be packed with  advice and inspiration for getting out in the hills as the snows melt for another year. 

The webinars will cover the basic skills that help you get the best out of your hill days - such as planning, navigation, moving safely over rough ground - but also seasonal tips such as dealing with long-lying snow fields, or coping with weather than can be warm and summery one minute and switch back to winter the next.

Webinars will take place on Zoom.

Dates and times: TBC
