Snow Shelter Adventure

You've watched Ray Mears build one, heard about Scott of the Antarctic living in one for months, or just fancy being an Eskimo for a night. No problem...Peak Mountaineering's Snow Shelter Adventure will be sure to bring out the Shackleton in you!

On day one we pack our bags, head to a suitable location and then take time building our shelter. This first day also gives us a chance to discuss other types of shelter and make sure we are fully aware of all the relevant safety issues. Then we cook an evening feast and bed down for a real night with a difference. The next morning, after a hearty breakfast, we'll use the day to take in a fine wintery walk back to civilisation.  A unique way to experience the best of the Scottish winter mountains.

Peak Mountaineering's Snow Shelter Adventure is suitable for everyone - all you will need is a reasonable fitness level and a sense of adventure! All technical equipment is included, boot hire is available for minimal cost and you can stay with us at our comfortable valley base before and after the snow shelter expedition if you wish.  All you need to bring is suitable clothing, a warm sleeping bag, rucksack and the all important camera to share the experience with your friends. Please follow the course details link below for more information.

Please note that we have scheduled some of our Snow Shelter Adventures so they can easily be combined with one of  2 or 3 day Winter Skills Courses if you want to extend your stay.  Details of our 2 day course are available here and our 3 day winter course details are available here.
