Award Description

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 an ideal choice for walkers interested in transferring their walking skills to more mountainous terrain. Ideally, participants would have some basic hill walking experience and have a reasonable level of fitness. Our courses are currently offered in North Wales and the Lake District


WHAT DOES THE MOUNTAIN SKILLS COURSE COVER ?
Planning – how to successfully plan a walk in the mountains.
Walking skills – what things should you consider while out walking and what can make life easier (pace, nutrition, movement skills, steep ground etc.). 
Clothing and equipment – being suitably dressed and equipped can make the difference between a great day out and a complete disaster. 
Weather – how it affects the mountains and your day out. 
Navigation 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 an emergency. 

About The Mountaineering Company
My main aim is to enable you to learn the skills you need in a fun and engaging environment. I purposely keep groups sizes small to ensure maximum learning so that myself or our instructors can focus more on you and what you need. I do on occasion bring in one of my friends to instruct or run session for me. All of my friends are qualified Mountain Skills tutors with years of experience and hold the relevant qualifications, first aid and insurance for the course they will be leading.
