Attaining the summit of the mighty Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the UK, in winter conditions is an amazing experience and is not an undertaking for the fainthearted! It is cold, can be very windy and has a substantial snow covering! It is almost unrecognisable from the summer.

We offer guided ascents every Saturday (trip duration 2 days) from December – April so all you need to do is choose the date that suits you and we’ll do all the hard work.  As well as a qualified mountain leader, you will be supported by our dedicated team to make sure your experience is fun and safe whilst helping you achieve your goals.

Day 1 of your guided winter ascent includes a training day to make sure you have all the necessary skills to successfully summit Ben Nevis.
