Topic - Winter skills courses

durkules - on 13 Nov 2013
I'm looking for advice and / or recommendations on winter skills courses. I'm a keen UK hillwalker but have never been out in proper winter conditions or used an axe / crampons so think a course should be my best option.

I assume Scotland is the safest bet for good winter conditions, but are Snowdonia / the Lakes typically good enough in winter months (both closer for me)?

A 2-3 day course is about the max length I can do (can't blag much more time away from the family!), so I'd like something fairly intensive, covering the basic skills and getting in some peaks.

Thanks in advance.
