Winter Mountain Safety Lecture – Rich Parker
Did we do the right things, or were we lucky? Tips for success
A collection of anecdotes, observations and lessons learnt from the Scottish winter mountains. Do we give ourselves the best opportunities for success and how often do we reflect on what makes a good day?
In this lecture Rich explains how to set up the best possible plan for a trip in the mountains.

About the Series
Now in the 32nd year, the Clachaig Winter Mountain Safety Lecture series is the longest running safety iniative 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 be a timely reminder when planning your outing for the next day. Read more about the lecture series…
Clachaig’s Winter Mountain Safety Lectures are brought to you with the kind support of Mammut UK. Local retailer Nevisport will be on hand with some Mammut products and hopefully be offering some great deals to everyone attending a lecture. Please give them your support so that the lecture series can continue to be provided free at the point of delivery.
Lectures start at approx 8pm in the Boots Bar. If everyone arrives in plenty of time, and gets their food sorted and beer ordered, then there’s more chance that the lecture will start at 8pm! There is NO CHARGE for entry.
