People walk in the hills and mountains for many reasons, but a significant motivating factor is the sense of freedom that you gain from exploring the great outdoors. Discovering new places and challenging yourself adds to the whole experience and within the UK and Ireland there are vast areas to explore and enjoy.
Walking in the hills and mountains can be a daunting prospect if you have never done it before. To stay safe and enjoy your time you need some basic skills and expertise to guide you on your way. The Hill & Mountain Skills courses are designed to teach you just that.
The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside walking. No previous hill walking experience is required to attend a Hill Skills course because the content of the course is aimed at beginners. If you do have some experience of hill walking but aren’t confident about planning walks, navigating and understanding the equipment required, then the Hill Skills course is an ideal way to learn.
The Mountain Skills course is an ideal choice for walkers interested in transferring their walking skills to steep, remote or more mountainous terrain. Ideally, participants will have some basic hill walking experience and have a reasonable level of fitness.
Hill & Mountain Skills courses are nationally accredited and developed by Mountain Training. The courses are delivered by Mountain Training approved course tutors, who are experienced Mountain Training award holders.
Trigpoint Adventures are an approved provider for Mountain Training Hill & Mountain Skills Courses and deliver these courses in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
