Winter Walking Advice



The Mountaineering Council of Scotland ten point winter check list is:
• Check your head torch and GPS batteries are in good condition, renew them if they’re fading and always carry a spare set of batteries in your rucksack. Always check that everyone you go on the hill with has a head torch.
• Carry a mobile phone whenever possible, but be aware that you won’t always get reception in remote places. Register with the SMS Emergency Text Service by visiting www.emergencysms.org.uk.
• Carry an emergency survival bag or bivvy shelter with you in winter.
• Check that your crampons fit your boots before using them, and get into the habit of putting them on before you reach icy ground.
• Carry your ice axe and know how to use it.
• Carry a big enough rucksack in winter. Using the same rucksack that you carry in summer is a recipe for an uncomfortable day when you are carrying extra winter kit.
• Carry sufficient extra layers of clothing in winter. The temperature drops quickly as darkness falls and you should plan for unexpected delays and the possibility that you could be out on the hill for an extended period in the event of an incident.
• Always check the mountain weather forecast before going out and be prepared to change your plans.
• Know when to turn back: the summit is only the half-way point of your journey.
