With winter upon us myself and Ben Gibson, Mountain Safety Advisor for Mountaineering Scotland, sit down and have a good chin wag about the issues facing runners in Scotland's winter mountains. We get our teeth into some winter specifics including winter navigation, snow and ice, avalanche hazards, weather, equipment choice and group dynamics. In my opinion an incremental approach is essential when developing the skills required for moving safely in winter mountains - hence "walk before you run" - as winter mountain running is really a niche of winter mountaineering rather than of running itself, in many ways. Ben mentions an interesting video looking at how quickly you get cold when you stop on the hill: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nJD49k5AMA Scottish Avalanche Information Service: www.sais.gov.uk Mountaineering Scotland's ThinkWINTER page: www.mountaineering.scot/safety-and-skills/thinkwinter
