Adventure Expeditions – Winter Mountain Skills Residentials – February 2023

Discover the wonders of Scottish winter, develop your winter walking skills and have a go at winter mountaineering. A good level of fitness is required but no previous experience is needed.

With Aviemore as our base we are perfectly placed to make the most of the ski road access to the high plateau of the Northern Cairngorms, offering a wide range of great mountain walks and areas to hone your winter skills and winter mountaineering. We may also use other nearby mountain areas such as Glen Feshie or Creag Meagaidh.

Over the six days we’ll teach you key winter skills whilst enjoying some great mountain journeys at the same time. You’ll learn how to use an ice axe and crampons, navigate in winter, build snow shelters, interpret mountain weather and avalanche forecasts. A really exciting residential with our most experienced instructors.

Your 6 day programme will be based from a comfortable local bunkhouse / chalet. Facilities are basic but of a good standard and comfortable with self-catering facilities, nice hot showers and plenty of drying room space to dry off snowy boots and gloves.

Food is provided for you throughout we take turns cooking for the rest of the group in small teams each evening – use our recipe cards and bags of ingredients to whip up a ‘Ready Steady Cook’ style special with your team mates!
