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.
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.
