Typical Winter Mountain Leader Refresher course layout

As mentioned previously, we are very flexible in what topics we look at on the Winter Mountain Leader Refresher course.  We will give as much of the ownership of decisions made out on the hill to yourselves, under our guidance, and look at fine tuning the skills you already have.  The layout of the course is flexible, and down to you.


The course content and location tends to be dictated to us by the weather.  We tend to stay over in the West Highlands, but happy to travel over to the Cairngorms for a day.
