Andy Houseman headlines collection of talks on winter skills and mountain safety

With the winter sports season edging ever nearer, Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, Glenmore Lodge & The North Face have teamed up to create a series of events across the UK, aimed at helping the public enjoy and safely make the most of their time on the mountains this winter.

The talks are a chance to gain valuable tips in helping explore mountain ranges, led by two highly experienced mountaineers who will help navigate attendees through the dangers that exist and offer advice on what can be done should something go wrong.

Senior Instructor at Glenmore Lodge, Derek Bain, will talk about crucial winter skills to prepare for adventures and will be joined by The North Face Athlete Andy Houseman who will recount his recent winter expedition to Link Sar in the Pakistan Karakoram.
