Get Active on our 2 day winter skills training courses in Scotland – based in the Cairngorms national park near Aviemore, these courses ensure you have the skills, knowledge & training to travel Scottish mountains safely in winter conditions.

On the training course, will get to develop your winter skills and learn new techniques. Such as: navigation, use of crampons & ice axes, walking safely in the snow, snow-pack analysis, & avalanche awareness/evaluation. Moreover, the Winter Skills days will utilise the Cairngorms (the very heart of winter in Scotland) to teach you the fundamentals of hill walking in Winter conditions.

Our winter skills days and training courses are based at the Cairngorms Adventure Centre and use the Northern Corries and Cairngorm Plateau, one of Scotland’s finest and most accessible high mountain areas, thus maximising your learning time. Similarly, other fine areas that we may use are; Creag Meagaidh, Ben Nevis & Glencoe. To sum up, where we go will depend on where the best snow conditions are and what is most appropriate.
