Description

Designed to supplement the summer hiking skills, the Winter hiking skills builds on those skills and adds winter related topics.

This is a mainly practical course in the basics of hiking. The skills learned on this course will help to make you into a confident winter hiker, equipped with the correct knowledge to walk safely in mountainous regions which are alpine enough to require skilled snow, cold and altitude knowledge. We run the course primarily in late winter (July-September) in the Hex River Mountains, or June-August in The Drakensberg.

You need to be fit and have some summer overnight hiking experience. Items such as tents, mattresses, stoves and sleeping bags are provided on request, but there is an assumption that you have personal items, including suitable footwear (waterproof).

  • Equipment care and usage

  • Navigation in winter conditions
  • Nutrition
