Mont Blanc Training Course


Climbing Mont Blanc is a fantastic achievement. Our courses will help prepare you for summit success! The stunning mountains of Snowdonia in North Wales are an ideal base from which to learn many of the skills needed to climb Mont Blanc. Our highly experienced IFMGA Mountain Guides will teach you all you need to know before venturing out to the Alps for your final preparations and summit climb. We are currently training around 40 people each spring for their summer ascent. Most of these are through  Mont Blanc Guides, the specialist Mont Blanc Company. For more information and dates go to our informative website  www.montblanctraining.co.uk


Thanks for your company and for a great couple of days. Thanks especially  to Graham and Owen for  a superb day on Y Garn . I’m inspired but re-assured  and planning to book the big trip next.

Having already committed to the 6 day Alpine course in June this year, I elected to attend the North Wales training course based on the advice provided on the MBG website and the previous testimonials. Naturally, I was a little uncertain about what to expect and what the course would provide.

The course exceeded my expectations with a simple well thought out agenda that was delivered in a relaxed yet professional style.Over the two days we enjoyed the best and worst of the Welsh weather!, and despite this, the guides stuck to the task remaining positive and engaging, spending time getting to know the attendees and providing “one to one” coaching. We picked up many new skills and techniques on the fells – learning to operate with ropes working together as a team to move quickly and safely up and down the crags. In addition we were given practical tips on the correct selection of equipment and how to be energy efficient when operating in the mountains.

I would like to thank Graham McMahon for the two days, Graham’s personal touch immediately settles the nerves and gets the focus going, proving practical answers to questions and concerns, whilst making the experience thoroughly enjoyable and fun – the time flew by!

I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to pick up new mountaineering skills and improve their training and planning for a trip to the Alps with MBG as well as improving general mountain skills to use at home in the UK. I left the course wanting to go back and do it again the next day just for fun and with a renewed vigour to practice the skills I picked up in Wales and keep up with my own training.

Best Regard, Andy Watson– ( 24th,25th March 2016- and no we didn’t write this ourselves!)
