A 2 day Winter Mountain Leader Refresher/Preparation course for those who want to refresh their core skills ready for the busy winter or for those who have an assessment booked and want some help preparing.
Day 1 - 9am meet (in Aviemore - exact location to be confirmed) with intro and setting up the course. Full day looking at personal movement and managing a group (including rope work scenarios) in steep terrain. We will also explore the scope of the award, develop our avalanche awareness based around the BAA Process from SAIS and look at introducing skills to novices.
Day 2 - 11am meet spend sometime discussing the assessment process and answering any questions. A journey day re-capping/re-visiting any areas from day 1 and then focusing on navigation including night navigation. With sunset being at 4pm we will will aim to be off the hill around 7pm giving us 3 hours of poor visibility/night navigation. NB. Programme can change to suit weather, conditions and candidates
