This course is aimed to give those both the skills and inspiration for the coming winter season. There will be two days of practical work on the hill looking at the various elements for safe travel in the winter mountains including ice axe and crampon technique including the self arrest, navigation, equipment, avalanche awareness, route choice and some emergency measures.
