Hill and Mountain Skills Courses

Upcoming Dates

There are no dates set at present. Why not contact us to arrange one.

Mountain Training

ATNE are delighted to be able to deliver Hill Skills and Mountain Skills courses for the Mountain Training Association.

These courses are a practical introduction to the skills required to get started in hill walking and mountain walking. The courses aim to equip participants with the basic knowledge and essential safety skills required to start pursuing their own involvement in hill and mountain walking as a leisure time activity.

Hill Skills

The Hill Skills course is aimed at the beginner hill walker and ideal for those interested in developing a practical understanding of how to plan walks, become familiar with the use of a map, learn about the equipment required, gain an understanding of the effects of weather, how to deal with emergencies and gain a valuable understanding of the upland environment. The course utilises countryside and moorland areas where the skills will be transferable to many popular walking areas of the UK and Ireland.

Course duration: 2 days
Minimum age: 14 years
Terrain areas: UK countryside and moorland. ATNE will generally run this course in Northumberland, North Yorkshire or the Yorkshire Dales, but we are happy to travel further afield.
Cost: £100 per person.

Mountain Skills

The Mountain Skills course is an ideal choice for walkers interested in applying their countryside walking skills to the mountain environment. Ideally, participants would have done some basic hill walking previously and have a reasonable level of fitness. Skills in map and compass, mountain weather forecasting, movement through steep ground, planning and preparation, emergency procedures, seasonal effects and the mountain environment all form the syllabus of this course. The course is run in the main high mountain areas of the UK and Ireland.

Course duration: 2 days
Minimum age: 14 years
Terrain areas: Mountains of the UK. ATNE will generally run this course in the Lake District
Cost: £110
