Lake District Winter Walking Skills
The Lake District can provide good winter conditions for you to learn or recap on basic winter skills. It is normal for us to use the Helvellyn or Scafell mountains, which hold the snow well and give reasonably quick access alongside great views and photographic opportunities. Our instructors will decide on the final venue according to the prevailing weather and snow conditions. We will aim to cover.
