This course is the first 2 days of the Winter Skills Week, the itinerary for the 2 days is outlined below.
Day one we look at how to prepare for winter, what we carry, how we carry it and why we carry it, we look at weather and avalanche forecasts and what they means to us. Once on the mountain it’s all about safe and efficient travel, good footwork, simple uses of ice axes, self-arrests and avalanche awareness.
We continue to develop our personal movement skills on day two which includes cramponing and moving on steeper terrain, different types of self-arrests, more avalanche awareness and snowpack analysis, and emergency procedures.
Navigation is always a key part of the weekend and we will be looking at brushing up on winter navigation skills.
