Trek and Mountain Winter Weekend Update

22nd Feb 2016

A while ago we reported on this year’s Trek and Mountain Winter Weekend.  We wanted to issue an update because it just got even better……

The weekend is now in its third year and this year’s event, running March 12-14th, is based in the Eastern Highlands mecca of Aviemore.  Aviemore makes a perfect base with great infrastructure, good transport links and, most importantly, great access to a host of world class walks and climbs.  We will be basing the event out of Aviemore's very well appointed central youth hostel although one of the big attractions of Aviemore is the wide range of accommodation available.

The formula is simple - sign up to one of our weekend courses, enjoy the ambience of evenings spent with like minded individuals, explore the beauty of the Cairngorms National Park and enjoy some evening entertainment in the form of interest talks and our famous winter quiz.  The courses are charged at our normal rate so the weekend is already great value, but this year’s event is very kindly sponsored by leading equipment brand Salewa who are giving all participants a brilliant selection of clothing and equipment now worth £300 for FREE.

Infact the big reason for this update is because the Salewa equipment package, which was already fantastic, just got even better.  Salewa were already offering all attendees a package that included a superb gilet, baselayer and beanie.  Now they have offered to include an ice axe for every attendee.  And even that’s not all.  There’s also the chance to try a great range of Salewa’s technical equipment which can be bought at a bargain price at the end of the weekend if you wish.  It’s the ultimate chance to try before you buy.  It really is a fantastic package and we still have spaces left for you.

Some of the courses on offer for this year have already sold out but we will always do our best to accommodate you so please do contact us if you are keen to extend your skills.  We have plenty of availability on our superb 3 day winter skills course which is a great winter option both for those new to the winter mountains as well as those keen to brush up on existing skills.  For the first couple of days participants cover key winter skills before putting them into practice on a third 'mountain journey' day.  It’s our most popular winter course and a great option (please note that we can also offer this as a Saturday/Sunday 2 day option at £180 for those unable to spare the third day).
