Hill Skills Day

Hill Skills Day

Do you feel you are lacking the confidence, skills and experience to explore the magnificent hills of the UK alone?

Would you like to learn how to become independent in your abilities to get walking confidently and safely?

Come and join us for a relaxed and fun day where you will learn valuable knowledge and skills form our qualified instructors so that you can achieve confidence in your abilities to explore the mountains either alone or with friends and family.

The day will consist of:

Basic use of a map
How to plan your route
What gear to take with you
How to deal with an emergency
Fitness and nutrition
The Weather – how to check the forecast and how to assess on your journey

No experience whatsoever is required for this day.  The day will be relaxed and at a comfortable pace on slightly technical terrain.

We offer a Mountain Skills course which is the next level to the hill skills and consists of the use of compass, more advanced navigation techniques and will be on a slightly more technical ground route than the hill skills.

What our clients say

I can highly recommend Snowdonia Mountain Adventure. Great day navigating on Crimpiau. Lara is very knowlegable and a fantastic mountain leader.


Cant recommend Lara highly enough. We recently went on the one day beginners course and it was fantastic!! We are complete beginners; clueless about map reading etc but a day with Lara has given us a really good foundation to build on. Ive already recommended to work colleagues

2020 Dates

Due to recent events surrounding the threat and spread of Coronavirus in the UK and more specifically the proliferation of the virus in Wales, AME have taken the decision to suspend all future events until the situation is clearer and we can be sure that travel across the UK does not threaten local residents.
