Struggling to self-arrest or perhaps you’re cursing those crampons when you can’t cram them on your boots? Whatever your troubles, BMC TV’s second set of winter skills videos will help you get back outdoors this snow season.
It’s that time of the year again, when winter rolls around and we begin to dig out the gear to cope with cold, snowy, or even icy conditions. But while the tools are (hopefully) rust-free, have our skills with them survived the summer untarnished?
If you have the time, check out our range of BMC-subsidised Winter Skills in Wales
weekends. Our videos are great for topping up your skills, but there really is no better way of learning than having skills and knowledge imparted face-to-face by an experienced instructor.
For those that are after a quick educational hit, check out BMC TV’s videos below.
