Want to learn how to use an ice-axe, assess snow conditions and navigate effectively in the winter mountains? Then this course being delivered by the Outdoor Learning Service is for you. We currently have nine people booked on our course on the weekend , 4th – 6th March. But there are still places left – a great value opportunity not to be missed. Places are available to both ELC and non-ELC staff – see here for rates. Contact us here to book your place. Last year’s adventures can be seen on this post.
This year we’re staying at on of the lodges at Lagganlia Outdoor Centre. Excellently placed for both the Northern Corries and the slightly quieter Feshie Hills.
Two levels of courses are being offered on the same weeked, First Steps and Next Steps - with the activities and journey’s being tailored to your needs and experience. All accommodation, food, transportation, instruction and safety & cold weather kit is provided … and those of us who have visited our base know we have excellent kit … most of it more up-to-date than that modelled by Mr Shackleton above.
