Winter mountain safety lecture tour 2018/19

Mountaineering Scotland has teamed up with Cotswold Outdoor, Tiso, Scottish Walks magazine and Scottish Mountain Rescue to offer you a fascinating insight into Scotland's mountains in winter and some essential safety advice for heading into the hills at this time of year.

In these lectures, Heather Morning, our Mountain Safety Advisor will share her beautiful photography, videos, personal anecdotes and adventures, while equipping you with some essential skills for winter navigation, avalanche awareness, route choice, equipment, mountain weather and much more. 

With a lifetime's experience in the mountains, Heather has been a professional mountaineer for 25 years and for 16 years was a member of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team.

All this years events are listed below.

Cost of lectures will be 5 and bookings will open in Autumn 2018.
