Topic - Winter Mountaineering: How to start?

Oo on 17 Dec 2012
I'm a rock climber with summer hillwalking experience and want to get out and do winter mountaineering and ice climbing (primarily to have skills for UK stuff, but with a view to Alpine trips). What's the best way to get started?

Winter skills course? Are there cheap, weekend, near Derby courses?

Are there any offers from MLs or pre-MLs who want a guinea pig to practice on?

Just having a go? Sounds like a great option until it goes wrong...

Apologies if I've missed a blindingly obvious resource of information on the topic, but a quick search (UKC and google) gave nothing apart from quite expensive looking courses which I'm a bit wary of.
