Navigation is the single most important ‘skill’ when venturing into the mountains, Summer and Winter.
On this one-day course we will teach you the necessary skills to navigate around the mountains safely, competently and enjoyably! Learning to use ice axes and crampons is only one part of planning your day out in winter.
This is an ideal course if you already have some Summer navigation knowledge and want to be more proficient under winter conditions. During the day some of the skills gained will be:
- Relating map to ground under snow conditions
- Dealing with cold, windy and difficult terrain
- Taking bearings
- Pacing and Timing
- Dealing with whiteout conditions
- Relocation techniques
