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

We all head into the mountains for different re reasons but what we all have in common is we want to know where we are. 

Having the confidence to be able to head outdoors and know that whatever the day has in store for you, you can handle it. This can be a satisfying feeling and one that can really make or break your mountain day.

The Mountain Skills course from Mountain Adventure Lake District is the ideal course for those wanting to improve their personal skills. Gaining independence and confidence is the key to enjoying all of Britians Mountains.

What does a 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 navigate 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.
