Glenmore Lodge is hosting the MTA Winter Conference on the 28th – 29th January 2017.

This is a great weekend of winter based CPD workshops for members of the Mountain Training Association and is an ideal opportunity to develop, refresh and learn new skills, find out about working as a Winter Mountain Leader and meet like-minded members. Stay for the whole weekend for the full experience or come along for one day.  If you are not already a member, join here http://www.mountain-training.org/associations/mountain-training-association/benefits/membership-benefits

There are a range of workshops including an introduction to winter skills for those who are venturing out in winter for the first time, navigation and teaching winter skills for those working towards their Winter Mountain Leader or in need of a refresher and also further training opportunities for award holders. See the full list of workshops below. All workshops are staffed by instructors who work at the National Centre or are leading experts in their field and the weekend will accrue CPD points (1 per day). The weekend will also include an update from the Association by Belinda Fear the Development officer and an evening lecture on the Saturday evening.

This is a great training and networking opportunity for MTA members and also members of BAIML and AMI who are working towards their Winter Mountain Leader.
