Winter Mountain Skills & Ice Diving Training

Being out on the hills and mountains is an amazing experience, but being on them in Winter is spectacular. I love being in the mountains all year around. However, the same mountain that you are visiting in the summer maybe a very different place in the winter. As such, I have put together a package of training that will give you the skills you require to get out into the mountains safely in all winter conditions, have a great time and come home with amazing memories and tales of conquests.

I offer a range of skills, experiences and adventures suitable for everyone. Most of the skills are taught as part of an active quality mountain day, adjusted to suit your level of experience.

Training can be a day, a weekend, a week or whatever works for you. Mountain Skills typically covered include;

  • The Ice Axe
  • Self Arrest
  • Self Belay
  • Footwork
  • Cutting Steps
  • Crampons & Their Use
  • Snow & Ice Anchors
  • Snow Shelters

I will be in Scotland running winter mountaineering and Ice diving throughout December, January, February and March 2021 (Covid19 allowing) so get in touch and book your day or few days with me.

I am a passionate adventurer, loving being in the mountains walking, climbing, scrambling as much as I love being under the water exploring shipwrecks, mines and caverns, or in search of treasure in the depths. I am a Mountain Instructor (MIA), a Winter Mountain Leader, a Scuba Diving Instructor (BSAC, TDI, SDI, IANTD), a skipper for CAT3 waters up to 25mtr and as I’ve built this experience over time, I have written about it and published those works. In addition I am a Chartered Manager with CILT, a member of the institute of Engineering & Technology, a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership & Management and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. I help people fulfill their goals in the Mountains (Worldwide), Scuba Diving (Worldwide), provide location support worldwide for the media and assist with technical and safety support whenever requested.
