The T&M Scottish Winter Weekend, in association with Rab, Lowe Alpine and Polartec combines winter mountaineering instruction during the day and social activities in the evenings. This year’s weekend is now sold out, but we have one last place on the weekend to give away… thanks to event sponsors Rab.
Our lucky winner will be able to choose one of the three courses we are running during the weekend – Winter Skills, Winter Mountaineering and Winter Climbing. For those new to winter mountaineering, our Winter Skills course is the perfect place to start as you’ll learn all the basics including how to walk in crampons, how to use your ice axe and how to self-arrest. Those who already have some winter experience, Winter Mountaineering is the next step up, and during this course you will learn how to make snow anchors, move together with your partner and weigh up avalanche risks. Finally, we have our most advanced course, Winter Climbing, which builds on the skills covered in Winter Mountaineering but takes on some classic Scottish winter routes containing pitched sections. All courses are led by the instructors from Peak Mountaineering.
The winner of the competition will not only participate on a course of their choice, they will also receive the same package of gear that the other participants will be receiving from our sponsors, Rab and Lowe Alpine. This consists of a Rab Neo Guide Jacket – top quality waterproof/breathable mountain shell using Polartec Neoshell; Rab Strata Hoodie – hooded midlayer using Polartec Alpha breathable insulation; Lowe Alpine Peak Attack – classic alpine mountaineering pack with 35:45 litre capacity and Rab Logo Beanie – high quality beanie sporting the Rab logo.
