Course Notes

A Mountain Training Mountain Skills Scheme course based in the Peak District and Lake District!

The Mountain training Mountain Skills course is aimed at the hill walker and is ideal for those interested in developing a practical understanding of how to plan walks, become familiar with the use of a map, learn about the equipment required and also gain an understanding of the effects of weather, how to deal with emergencies and gain a valuable understanding of the mountain environment. The course utilises moorland and mountain areas where the skills will be transferable to many popular walking areas of the UK and Ireland.

We’ll cover the full syllabus of the course, using both the Dark Peak and the Lake District, so as well as learning all the skills you will get to see some of the stunning scenery of the Peak District high moorland and an ascent of a Lake District mountain like Helvellyn.

The course fee covers all instruction, technical equipment, and 2 full-days learning in the mountains, as well as 1 evening training session too! This is not a residential course, but we can advise on great places to stay nearby.

The course needs a minimum of 4 people to attend.
