Winter Skills

Our Winter Skills courses are delivered on a 1:4 ratio.  Low ratios aid participant involvement and learning opportunities whilst increasing the safety of the group.

Course locations vary and will be set to suit both the conditions and participants on the course.  We typically operate across the Cairngorms and Angus glens but are certainly not limited to these areas.
