Grants available for ski mountaineering

Posted by on 29/09/2006

The Alpine Ski Club is seeking applications for grants towards activities related to ski mountaineering within the framework of the Kenneth Smith Scholarship and the Memorial Adventure Fund.

Entirely at the discretion of the ASC, grants can be provided for the following activities:
  • Taking part in a serious ski mountaineering expedition which includes an element of exploration
  • Attending an approved training course in the full range of ski mountaineering skills
  • Carrying out a research project on an aspect of ski mountaineering 
  • Other activities, which further the knowledge and practice of safe movement in the mountains on ski 
An approved training course is usually considered to be one under the direct supervision of a qualified mountain guide. Awards are especially but not exclusively for young skiers.
 
Currently the deadlines for applications are:
  • 31 October for the Kenneth Smith Award as this is usually but not exclusively given towards training
  • 21 January for the Memorial Adventure Fund
  
Further details and an application form can be found on the Alpine Ski Club website.

The most impressive traverse ever completed?

Belgian climber Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll has been willingly stuck in Patagonia since Covid-19 kicked off, and making the most of it: jaws dropped around the climbing world when he became the first to solo the Fitz Roy Traverse late last week. This epic route, fantasised about by anyone who has ever seen a photo of the jagged skyline above El Chalten, was first completed by the dream simul-climbing team of Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell in 2014. The route traverses the iconic Cerro Fitz Roy and its six satellite peaks: 5km of ridge line with around 4000m of vertical gain.

Cold winters? A prediction

What has caused the particularly cold weather that has blanketed the UK in snow this year? How can you get an idea, as early as September, whether to get your skis out and sharpen your crampons for a top winter or not? And how does this tie in with climate change? David Dobson has the answers, and we also round up a selection of the best photos of mountain days in the British snow.
