Navigation in Winter ZOOM Webinar
Winter conditions pose additional challenges to hill walkers, mountaineers and climbers; features that would normally provide welcoming waymarks might be blanketed by snow, and whiteout conditions can easily disorient and send you off the wrong way. Having confidence in your kit, with solid strategies and skills, will help keep you on the right track. In this session, we’ll cover
• Winterising your navigation tools – looking at different map types and understanding which scale for which area, handy compass attachments and much more.
• Practising your skills with gloves and goggles – these can make things look and feel very different to summer, so some practice is key to help you stay slick.
• Strategies for navigation in winter
This session will be delivered by Kath James and Brad Reed. Kath is a Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor, and Brad is a Winter Mountain Leader. Both have huge experience in winter navigation.
