This is an opportunity to spend a day on Helvellyn with a Lake District National Park Fell Top Assessor as they climb to the summit of the mountain to take snow and weather readings for the Lake District Weatherline Service. For each event our Fell Top Assessor will guide you on a route up the mountain, chosen according to snow and weather conditions and the ability of the group members, teaching you the basic skills of snowcraft needed for safe winter walking in the fells and mountains of the UK.

The day promises to be strenuous, informative, challenging, but also a lot of fun!

Group and private courses available. Dates from 5th December through January, February and March. Final course date 5th April. All participants must be over the age of 18.
