Winter Mountaineering Courses in Scotland

Our winter mountaineering courses are based predominately around the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland. This is a great opportunity to tackle those classic Scottish winter mountaineering routes you’ve aspired to climb. Routes we might do would be things like Fiacaill Ridge, Jacobs Edge, the Slant, Afterthought Arete and many more condition dependant. On our two and four day courses you may also climb at Creag Meagaidh, Aonaoch Mor and Ben Nevis (following whatever has the best conditions around). The days will be tailored to your personal and group needs and will tackle some classic winter mountaineering routes. The course ratios are on a 1:2.
