Winter Mountaineering


Activity: Winter Mountaineering


Winter Mountaineering requires a great amount of resilience, careful preparation and will power. Winter conditions provide a great environment to progress summer mountain skills and learn how to look after yourself alongside others in hard conditions. After careful consideration of the forecast we go for an adventure in the mountains with a focus on developing winter skills, as well as the personal benefits of being in that environment.

During the wintertime, Snowdonia can provide a brilliant playground for activities. This is dependent upon whether there has been snow and cold temperatures, therefore it is only available during the winter months (January-March). If there are no winter conditions, then we can still go into the mountains for a similar adventure during the winter months.

Desired Outcomes
  • Resilience
  • Perseverance
  • Strong willpower
  • Learning how to cope in hard conditions
  • Gain a love of the mountains in winter and the challenge that comes with them
