We've joined forces with our friends at Lowe Alpine to bring you #MakeWinterCount - a season of winter skills films and lectures culminating in a social media competition.
#MakeWinterCount is brought to you by the BMC and Lowe Alpine
UK LECTURE TOUR
Who can go? Our winter skills lectures are brilliant for anybody who wants to learn more about winter mountain skills. You’ll go from bumbling about to striding with confidence to the summit after you’ve gained all the knowledge from winter experts Sam Leary and Mick Jones.
What’s more, there’ll be loads of Lowe Alpine goodies up for grabs in the free prize draw each evening to tool you up!
So what skills will you learn about? Everything the new winter adventurer could possibly need, including:
Equipment and clothing
And much more!

WINTER SKILLS FILMS
Get yourself winter ready by watching our skills films on BMC YouTube
Please contact Becky McGovern at the BMC
As the climbing walls, crags and mountains start to open, we wanted to say thanks to every BMC member who supported us through the Coronavirus crisis.
From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t have made it without you.
