Alpine ambition? Have you got the skills?

Posted by Becky McGovern on 19/03/2014

Are you ready for your alpine adventures? Discover the essential skills at a BMC Alpine Lecture.

Sponsored by Berghaus the BMC Alpine Lectures are touring the UK at the beginning of May.

CONTENT

With the excellent line up of Tim Neill (British Mountain Guide)and Rob Greenwood (Alpinist) these skill lectures are set to inspire.  Tim and Rob will cover: best areas to visit; glacier travel; weather; huts & bivis; avalanche awareness; route selection; and the dark art of moving together.

WHO ARE THEY FOR?

As well as being for people at the start of their alpine career; they are also a great refresher for people who are planning an alpine trip after a few years break.

There will be a  free prize draw each evening for audience members with prizes from Berghuas.

Its such a shame all these lectures are so far South, would there be any chance of adding more dates further North such as Cumbria, or even southern Scotland. I would be really interested in going to this lecture but as the nearest is a 3hr drive away, I just can't justify that amount of travel.
