52 weeks of adventure – and a bumper winter skills guide.

The February 2019 issue of The Great Outdoors is in shops now, and it’s a bumper winter issue filled with the best stories, skills guides, gear reviews and mapped routes you’ll find in any UK outdoor magazine.

In our ’52 weeks of adventure’ section, you’ll find suggestions for outdoor New Year’s resolutions for every month of the year from starting your Munros list to taking part in the OMM. David Lintern climbs Ben Lui in challenging winter conditions and learns valuable lessons on the need to stay flexible in winter, while Laura Jeacocke heads to Lundy. Mike Waring demonstrates the benefits of ‘hot tenting’ in winter conditions and Alex Roddie returns to the Lakeland mountains after a difficult winter of family tragedy.

The experts of Glenmore Lodge have contributed a 17-page skills guide to staying safe in the winter mountains, covering everything from clothing and kit selection to avalanche avoidance, navigating and more. Meanwhile, Chris Townsend reviews 12 of the best synthetic insulated jackets. Of course, you’ll also find 10 mapped Wild Walks too.
