Winter Mountain Safety Lecture – Mike Pescod
Maximise your Winter – The Dark Art of Winter Route Choice
Presented by Mike Pescod
Mike Pescod, IFMGA Mountain Guide, has been running Abacus Mountain Guides from Fort William for 17 years and has been leading people in the mountains for 25 years.
About the Lecture
Being in the right place at the right time will give you the best chance of a successful and safe winter. But how do you choose the route that is just right for each day given different weather, conditions and avalanche hazard? Mike shares his 22 years of experience to help you make successful decision in the winter.
Clachaig’s lectures are informal by design, and will hopefully be as entertaining as they are educational. For 2018 lectures will be presented in the Boots Bar. There is no charge for entry. Start will be 8pm approx. If part of a larger group, please give us some advance notice so that we can do our best to prepare accordingly. To help us to continue to improve and develop the series, we’d be very grateful for your feedback after the lecture.
The series is sponsored by Rab. Please give them your support and encouragement so that the lecture series can continue to be provided free at the point of delivery.
About the Lecture Series
Now in the 33rd year, the Clachaig Winter Mountain Safety Lecture series is the longest running safety initiative of its kind. Designed to be a last port of call before setting off into the winter hills, each lecture will look at key safety considerations which may well be a timely reminder when planning your outing for the next day.

We are particularly keen to ensure that the lecture series remains FREE ENTRY as it has done since its inception. However, there are costs and we are extremely grateful for the backing and financial support of Rab. Their belief in the value of the lectures has ensured that the series can continue to be delivered for the 2018 season.
Whilst the lectures are free, we will be asking you to part with a pound, or three, as we raise funds for Glencoe Mountain Rescue throughout the course of FebruaryFest.
There are some great prizes from Rab and a range of other local and connected businesses. Read more about The Big Winter Raffle.
Tickets on sale on the night and throughout February at Clachaig.
