Winter is a wonderland at the Lodge and we have some of the best winter climbing on our doorstep

You can assess the conditions while having your breakfast by looking at the routes out the window. Adventure is never far away when you are based in the middle of one of Europe’s last great wilderness areas.

Whether you are a summer hill walker just starting out in winter or you’re looking to test your skills on some of the classic routes on Ben Nevis, we have the perfect course for you. Dont miss our excellent avalanche courses too, designed to improve your decision making skills.

We offer both Winter Mountain Leader & Mountain Instructor Certificate courses for those looking for qualifications.

Winter Mountaineering & Winter Climbing Reviews

The food provided by the lodge whilst at the center and on the hill is second to none, it seems nothing is to much trouble for the team. The instructors provided a challenging, yet extremely professional and fair assessment process, with their intentions and expectations of the candidates very clear. I would definitely recommend the lodge to anyone looking for an outdoor course or even just somewhere to stay. Thanks Guys another great visit.
James Hellmers Winter Mountain Leader Assessment


A challenging week with quality candidates and assessors. The only pressure I was under on assessment was that which I placed upon myself.
