HILL SKILLS SESSION - 31ST MARCH AVIEMORE
We have been asked to run a session in the Aviemore area and need a small group to make this session viable. Aimed at beginners or those who need a refresh. Limited spaces available, aged 12+, under 18s to be accompanied by an adult.
This course will cover the following and is aimed at beginner level. After this course it is recommended you attend one of our National Navigation Award Scheme courses to embed the skills further. Intermediate coaching can be arranged too, just contact us to discuss.
- Know the code
- Before you go procedures (weather, who to tell, etc)
- What to take on the hill
- Emergency on the hill
- Understanding the maps
- An intro to the compass
- Navigation Strategies
9am start, finished by 5pm. This is an outdoor session in a woodland location, perhaps to a small hill. Approximate length of walk 10km. The precise location will be known once we have a full overview of the group but will be local to Aviemore.
