Winter Mountaineering and Ice Climbing Courses are run at this fantastic time of year in the Scottish Highlands by Snowgoose Mountain Centre when the hills and mountains are covered with snow and ice. Our skills based winter courses for climbing, mountaineering and guiding are delivered in the mountains around the Ben Nevis and Glencoe areas in a convenient location 4 miles from Fort William.
Look through the types and levels of Scottish winter courses on offer through the web link. We deliver courses in ice axe & crampon techniques, avalanche awareness, through to advanced winter climbing courses. We introduce complete winter novices to the basic winter walking skills needed to travel in the mountains of the Scottish Highlands safely in winter giving a solid skills base to those who wish to extend their summer mountain walking into the winter.
As usual we also provide private winter guiding and bespoke individually tailored courses to our clients’ exact requirements.
Also on offer is our full range of winter mountain gear – winter boots suitable for fitting crampons (please bring your boots of you require only crampons), ice axes and helmets. We do not supply crampons only without having the boots to which they are to be fitted – we will do the fitting as part of the service
