Anybody know of good and reasonably priced providers, would like to learn, in order of priority some winter climbing skills, winter mountaineering and ski touring. A perfect course would be one that provided an introduction into all. I am an experienced climber and have done a little winter climbing over the last few years, but my skill set is not keeping pace with what I feel physically capable of. Anyone got any suggestions, would be looking to do it mid January too.

In reply to Badam: Oops, forgot that bit. I'm based in Shropshire but will be heading to Scotland for a couple of weeks in January, so anywhere in Scotland really.
