HELVELLYN Winter Skills courses are back and available to book for anyone wanting to improve their skills.

Course Dates are between December 5 and April 5, 2021 where you can make the most of a unique opportunity to spend a day on Helvellyn with a Lake District National Park Authority Fell Top Assessor as they climb to the summit of the mountain to take snow and weather readings for Lake District Weatherline Service.

During the one day course the Fell Top Assessor will guide you on a route up the mountain, chosen according to snow and weather conditions and the ability of the group members, teaching you the basic skills of snowcraft needed for safe winter walking in the fells and mountains of the UK.

The day promises to be strenuous, informative, challenging, but also a lot of fun.
