Outdoors Magic Winter Skills 2010, February 27th & 28th continued

In this picture Iain coaches one of the clients on what most considered to be the most challenging aspect of ice axe arrest - that of going down a slope head first on your back.

Everyone came away from this winter skills course with a heightened sense of their abilities to cope with winter conditions and improved self confidence. Having been on a winter skills course with us, many clients return to do bigger and better things as the next few posts demonstrate.

Kendal Mountaineering Services organised all aspects of this winter skills course including accommodation, food and as can be seen here - beer! For £148 clients got 3 nights accommodation, two days of instruction, a full English breakfast on both mornings and an evening meal on Saturday night. Real ale was on tap at £2 per pint. Everyone thought we offered exceptional value in every aspect of the course. We like to stay ahead of the competition in terms of value for money and overall experience.

Finally, a group shot of this years OMWS2010 team. People came from all over the UK to join us on this event and many had made long journeys to be here. We had 6 guys from Ireland, 4 having travelled from Dublin and even a chap from Belgium came to join us.
Our thanks go out to all of these people who attended - making it one of the most successful winter skills weekends ever and we hope to see you all again - whether it be on future courses or just out on the hill.
Our thanks also go out to Patricia & Richard of for providing our accommodation this time; and for being so very flexible.
