The Scottish Highlands in winter can be wild and intimidating, but they can also be awe-inspiring and beautiful. With the right skills and knowledge, you can make these mountains your playground throughout the winter months.
This weekend we are teaming up with Girls on Hills to bring you a weekend of new experiences, new skills and a chance to push yourself physically or mentally, in a safe and supportive environment.
Whether you are new to snowy mountains or are an experienced winter climber looking to perfect your technique, the Women’s Winter Festival has something for you. Join us for a weekend of building confidence and having fun in a unique celebration of the great outdoors!
We have a huge range of workshops taking place as part of the inaugural Women's Winter Festival on 12th & 13th March 2022.
We are so looking forward to hearing from Becky Coles on Friday night, 7pm at Ellis Brigham in Fort William.
Climbing all the alpine 4000m peaks has yet to be completed by an all-women's team. Over two trips, one on skis in the Spring, the other throughout the summer, we climbed 56 peaks. She named it Project Alpine Spirit and discovered a fascinating history of women who shunned social norms and climbed in the Alps from the Victorian era to the present day. The talk tells the story of our journey and introduces some of the women who were at the forefront of Alpinism.
We have a couple of last minute spaces available. Get in touch, the weather looks good for the weekend!
Self reliance is a fundamental principle of mountaineering. By participating we accept this and take responsibility for the decisions we make. These blog posts and conditions reports are intended to help you make good decisions. They do not remove the need for you to make your own judgements when out in the hills.
