The Hill & Mountain Skills scheme is a great way to develop your personal skills and confidence in all elements of hill and mountain walking. From planning a coastal walk to navigating in complex terrain, these courses are an ideal opportunity to learn the basics and enjoy the countryside. THIS IS NOT THE HILL AND MOORLAND LEADER SCHEME.

About

The Mountain Skills course is nationally accredited and endorsed by Mountain Rescue England and Wales and will provide you with the skills and confidence to: ...............................................................................................................

Successfully plan a walk in the hills or mountains in the UK or Ireland

Understand pace, nutrition and movement skills over various terrain & steep ground

Make an informed choice of correct clothing and equipment – being suitably dressed and equipped can make the difference between a great day out and a complete disaster

Interpret the weather – how it may affect the hills & mountains and your day

Navigate in the mountains – everything from selecting a compass and using a map to navigation in poor visibility and an intro to GPS

Environmental knowledge – how to minimise your impact on the hill, information on good practice and useful organisations

Hazards and emergency procedures in the mountains – how to respond to any hazards you encounter and what to do in a real emergency Registration for the scheme

If you wish to attend you first need to register with Mountain Training. Registration incurs a one-off fee that will give you access to both Hill& Mountain Skills courses and a digital logbook for recording all your adventures. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Course details: The 2-day courses are run with a maximum of four people, I have found that this is the best mix to maximise learning during the practical sessions (larger groups can be accommodated if part of an organised group) and will take place in the Snowdonia National Park. Please contact myself (Martin) via email with any course enquiries or bookings: mwall16@tiscali.co.uk .........................................................................................................................................................................
