So.. I'm hoping to do my Winter ML training at the end of the season, but before that I still need to rack up some more QMDs.

If anyone is keen to get more Winter QMDs and practice your nav & skills - or just stomp around in the white stuff for no particular reason - it would be good to hear from you.

I'm based in Glasgow. Have flexible working so I'm not only confined to weekends. I can drive, but unfortunately don't have a car right now.

I am based west cumbria always keen to get up to highlands in winter. Have winter climbing experience ski mountaineering etc but not too much recently. Would be good to get some full on winter hill days and firm up nav skills. Done the summer ML course but never got round to the test as have job but always keen to practice. Can do occasional weekdays don't mind winter camping and roughing it now and then. email if interested mikep64@btinternet.com

Hi Steve.

Im looking to get more QMDs. Ive done summer ML training and have reasonable experience. Id be up for longer integrated days with a grade I or II route thrown in.

Hi Steve,
In a similar boat, looking to do the assessment this winter, have enough logbook days, just need to get my head in full WML mode so I'll be out as much as is feasibly possible.
Also in Glasgow - Rutherglen/Burnside.

I'm also going for assessment this season and will be living a nomadic Scottish existence with a car and a SYHA card from Boxing Day until the end of March. If anyone wants to get out I'd be more than happy for some company!

Hi all,

I'll be up in Scotland for much of this coming season and also prepping for my WML assessment and keen to get out.
Have you seen the "Scotland Winter ML 2017" FB group? It's got quite a few like-minded members and I've just stuck a post up there looking for partners over different weeks. Otherwise, feel free to PM me and be great to meet up for some practise.

Not able to get out until after Xmas and due to living in Manchester it won't be very frequently but I'll drop you all a message nearer the time if its OK see if anyone wants to get out.

Have a week in feb 18th to 22nd ish if that's not to late.

Heading up to Cairngorms 12th - 18th February for some winter walking.

Have the SML award and have done about 7 days in UK winter as well as some high altitude mountaineering (up to 6500m).

If anyone wants to do some stuff over that week let me know. I will be based in Newtonmore below Aviemore and will head out one day at a time (no camping as have a air bnb rental).
