A True 3 Peaks challenge in winter conditions!

If you have a good level of fitness and previous mountain walking experience we now offer an alternative winter version of the traditional 3 Peaks Challenge.

In winter the mountains are truly spectacular offering walkers a completely different perspective in contrast to the hussle and bussle of the hectic summer months.

Led by qualified experienced winter mountain instructors this offers a truly rewarding mountaineering experience.

We will train you to safely use Ice axes and crampons and give you advice and support through out this challenge. We also supply the axes and crampons, if needed.

The 3 Peaks Challenge is one of the UK’s best known mountain challenge event, which attracts thousands of people each year, it involves climbing the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales. These are Snowdon – 1085m, Scafell Pike – 978m and Ben Nevis – 1344m. The aim is to complete all 3 mountains within 24 hours.

Why Attempt The Winter 3 Peaks Challenge?

There are many reasons for attempting the Winter Three Peaks Challenge, whether it be to raise funds for deserving charitable causes, to test yourself against the mountains or simply for the sheer enjoyment of being amongst some of the most dramatic scenery in the world. Whatever your reason for rising to the challenge it will be one of the most memorable experiences you will have.

Challenge Provisions

We offer this challenge to small and medium sized groups. Due to the arduous nature of this challenge, it is not suitable for large groups. You will be guided by a highly qualified mountain instructors who will provide support and assistance to you, on and off the mountain. We have a maximum instructor/client ratio of 1:8.

We offer a full organisation and planning service, with our in depth knowledge of the event and locations, you can trust us to deliver the logistical support that you deserve.

The majority of our events are run on an all-inclusive basis however if you would like us just to provide mountain instructors and equipment then let us know.

We can run this challenge either North to South or the other way around. It may be worth considering doing the challenge South to North if you live in the South of England and then flying back from Glasgow as most of our groups do.

Challenge Options

There are a number of ways you can complete this challenge. At UK Challenges we can offer you 3 options:

Option 1: The traditional challenge – completing all 3 peaks up and down in 24 hours – you need to have a very good fitness level to successfully complete it.

Option 2: We know that the average times for each mountain are; Snowdon 4 hrs, Scafell Pike 4 hrs and Ben Nevis 6 hrs, in summer conditions. This gives you a challenge time of 14 hours to complete all 3 mountains. Traffic and weather conditions can affect the overall time. Thus by going solely on a ‘cumulative peak only’ time, you will not lose any hill time if you are stuck in traffic due to road works or accidents. It should be noted that all vehicles which have more than 9 seats are now limited to 62 mph by law. A reasonable level of fitness is required for this option.

Option 3: 3 Peaks Over 3 Days – Take your time to enjoy the outstanding British mountain scenery – Please call or email for full details and costs.

Why Attempt with us?
