We've joined forces with our friends at Lowe Alpine to bring you #MakeWinterCount - a season of winter skills films and lectures culminating in a social media competition.
#MakeWinterCount is brought to you by the BMC and Lowe Alpine
UK LECTURE TOUR
Who can go? Our winter skills lectures are brilliant for anybody who wants to learn more about winter mountain skills. You’ll go from bumbling about to striding with confidence to the summit after you’ve gained all the knowledge from winter experts Sam Leary and Mick Jones.
What’s more, there’ll be loads of Lowe Alpine goodies up for grabs in the free prize draw each evening to tool you up!
So what skills will you learn about? Everything the new winter adventurer could possibly need, including:
Equipment and clothing
And much more!
