Mike and Lisa Cooke, Intro to winter mountaineering weekend, Feb 2007

'Lisa and I had a fantastic time. We had always wanted to do an intro into winter mountaineering and Highland Guides delivered exactly what we wanted. Their 'can-do' attitude was evident throughout. Mike Brownlow (the Highland Guides instructor) was able to subtly change the weekend programme as it developed. I wasn't expecting to make it up a graded route on Ben Nevis in winter but after just a day and a half of instruction and under the careful eye of Mike the Ledge Route was quickly under the belt followed by awesome decent of No. 4 Gully. We both feel that we have added considerably to our skills and hope to be able to get up north for more. Thanks again.
