    Hi All
    This is the course i was informing members about who have not had any previous winter skills,its run by the Helvellyn hill top accesors.

    The courses run with a minimum of three people and a maximum of eight and cost £90 per person. Full details, including kit list and other requirements are available on the Lake District Weatherline website, where you can also book a course. http://www.lakedistrictweatherline.co.uk/home/winter-skills-courses

    This sounds like a very good idea, and also inexpensive. It is not always possible (or always fair) to interrupt a planned mountain day with too much instruction. But it’s not wise to be “upstairs” in winter unless you have practical experience of things like self-arrest, crampon work, axe technique, snowpack assessment, and erosion/deposition patterns. So learning your ‘Green Cross Code” so handily in the Lakes is an attractive plan.
