Osprey Winter Adventure Competition

Osprey Winter Adventure Competition

Yippee! We are truly jumping with excitement to announce our latest Peak Mountaineering and Osprey Winter Adventure Competition. It’s a real belter – please be sure not to miss this one.

Time to get stoked for winter adventures

The first snows have been reported in parts of Scotland and temps across the UK are heading south.  Yippee! We are sure you will join us in looking forward to a winter of snowy adventures. 

Of course, enjoying the winter mountains needs specific skills to keep you safe. What if you don’t have those? That’s no problem.  We’ve been training people to become independent winter hill walkers, climbers and mountaineers for decades.  

The only remaining problem is that we don’t deny winter training and adventures can be expensive.   So for winter 2021 we are pushing the boat out and offering a truly fantastic Peak Mountaineering winter training course competition.  Even better, when we mentioned the idea to our friends at Osprey Packs they were really keen to jump on board too. Welcome to our Peak Mountaineering and Osprey Winter Adventure Competition.

What’s on offer?

The prize package is, even if we say it ourselves, pretty amazing.  We are offering TWO places on one of our Aviemore based Scottish Winter Climbing, Winter Mountaineering, 3 Day Winter Skills or 2 day Snow Shelter courses along with self catering accommodation for 3 nights. We’ll even add in all technical equipment free of charge. 

All you’ll need to provide is suitable clothing and footwear (boot hire is easily available locally and we can help arrange this) and food (self catering facilities are available).  You’ll also be in charge of getting yourself to Aviemore (we can advise you on the best ways to travel there).  This all adds up to a brilliant adventure bundle worth up to £1000.  

On top of all that,  getting your equipment to Scotland will be simpler than ever.  Osprey are kindly offering one of their new season Transporter 95 litre duffle bags worth £130 and a Transporter Flap rucksack worth £90 (as shown in the photo above).  This is the perfect luggage bundle to haul your gear north and together that add up to a total adventure bundle worth over £1200. We really hope you are as excited about our Osprey Winter Adventure Competition as we are.

There are plenty of both midweek and weekend dates available and we will discuss options with the lucky winners.  Just one other handy thing to mention too.  Most of the prizes offered are for 3 day courses, but don’t be put off entering if you can only spare two days or a weekend.  We can easily adapt the prize to be a two day option instead.  

The accommodation offered will be simple but comfortable hostel type accommodation with good on site facilities.  You are welcome to upgrade this at your own expense to a bed and breakfast or even luxury hotel option.  We’ll simply discuss this with the lucky winner.

Sounds awesome.  How do I enter?

Which course is right for me?  

Hopefully a read through our website will give you all the information you need.  If not, just to sum things up, our Winter Skills and Snow Shelter courses suit beginners to the winter mountains.  Our Winter Mountaineering courses are perfect for those with some winter experience and future aspirations to venture onto graded mountaineering ground.  Lastly, our Winter Climbing courses suit winter hillgoers looking to move onto more vertical technical terrain.  

You’re certainly not alone in your choice though.  We always want to make sure you end up on the right course.  Don’t hesitate to Contact Us or call if you want to chat things through.
