Weather and conditions:

The BBC and other TV/printed media will produce weather forecasts based on sea/lower ground level. These can be misleading if you are thinking of going up to height as they won't show the weather in the mountains (or on them!). The useful links below provide more detailed weather forecasts for mountain regions.

Mountain Weather Information Service: MWIS currently produce forecasts for the higher mountain areas of the UK as an aid to mountain safety.

Yr.No: A Norwegian weather service which covers individual (not all) major summits and areas in Britain. There is a downloadable App version. It is possible to convert the wind speeds from meters per second to something more familiar!

Met Office Mountain Weather: This section of the Met Office also provides warnings about potential hazards in the main mountain areas of Britain. Selected summits can be searched for to get a more accurate picture of what may happen in a particular locality. There is also past observed conditions which can be useful in planning (e.g. has it rained non stop for 3 days in which case the rivers may well be in full spate and uncrossable).

Sportscotland Avalanche Information Service: SAIS publish the daily forecasts of the avalanche, snow, and mountain conditions in Lochaber, Northern and Southern Cairngorms, Creag Meagaidh, Torridon and Glencoe.

Associations and Charities:

Mountain Training Association: The MTA is a membership organisation for climbing, walking and mountain leaders in the UK and Ireland.

British Mountaineering Council: The national representative body for England and Wales that exists to protect the freedoms and promote the interests of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers, including ski-mountaineers. The BMC produce lots of video guides on different aspects of mountaineering and hillwalking which are well worth a look.

Duke of Edinburgh Award: Helping young people gain skills and independence through challenges, leadership, teamwork and expeditions.
