Winter mountaineering your way


The first proper snow has fallen in the Scottish highlands and more will be on its way! So it’s time for thoughts to turn to winter. At Granite Trails we feel that the wintery mountains are best enjoyed on your terms, so all of our winter courses are bespoke, tailored to your needs and the conditions we find on the day. We only work with small ratio groups, for maximum learning and safety. As always with a Granite Trails course all of our staff are highly qualified and experienced professionals, who spend the whole winter season living and working in the mountains. Here are some of the winter courses we can run. You can find more information on the course content on the hill walking and mountaineering pages.

  • Winter Hill walking skills
  • Winter mountaineering
  • Guided mountain days
  • Snow, ice and mixed climbing

We always find it best to talk to people about their plans and aspirations in the mountains, so get in touch and our expert team will make sure you get the best advice and training for you.
