Summer Alps Courses Overview
For many people a visit to the Alps is a logical next step from British mountains. Although it is preferable to have some Scottish winter experience with crampons and ice axe, it is not essential at an introductory level, as these skills are easily taught during the course.
A very wide range of abilities and ambitions are catered for from introduction to advanced, whether on rock or ice or mixed terrain, courses or private guiding. Any location is possible in Switzerland, France or Italy.
Programme details are normally discussed with groups or individuals in advance in order to achieve a satisfactory blend and success.
The staff working on all alpine courses will be members of the IFMGA as required by the laws of many alpine nations. These qualifications should be your guarantee of attention to detail, safety and success. Be sure your alpine guide carries this logo.
