Alpine Skills Training

We want independent climbers, mountaineers and alpinists to be able to access realistic skills training to enjoy their own trips in the mountains.

We offer short skills training courses for independent climbers and aspiring alpinists when stepping up a level or visiting a new mountain environment for the first time. These bespoke sessions can be delivered in the UK or frequently, as a spring board to your own trip in the alps.

You won’t find off the peg courses here, as we feel its important to understand your needs first. Ultimately, we want to add value and take you further towards your goals, whatever they may be.

All our alpine skills training are bespoke sessions built around you, so there may be variation as to what is included.

You will need to organise accommodation, lunch and snacks and personal equipment. We also recommend insurance e.g. The British Mountaineering Council.


Alpine skills sessions are delivered at a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2, and at a standard day guiding rate. Some skills can be covered at higher ratios of 1:4 in some carefully controlled situations.

Our standard guiding rate is £440 per day in the Alps. In the UK, the rate is £300 per day. More information on bookings and all our pricing can be found here on our Booking Information page.
