My Mountain Training with Christy was class. We climbed 3 mountains in 3 days with a great group of people and had such a laugh. When Christy was teaching us and helping us to work towards our Mountain Leader Training, it was so easy to understand, everything was explained in detail and no stone was left unturned. The skills that I have been taught during my Mountain Training will stick with me forever. Christy was a great leader. Highly recommended if anyone is interested in doing ML or other qualifications.

"What a fabulous experience I had learning on my day in the woods with Christy and I have come away with such a lot of new knowledge and skills and experience. Putting up hammocks and learning about perfect sites to do this was great fun. I learnt so much about lighting and keeping a fire going. I was just totally immersed in this and felt very happy and quite proud of the lovely fire I was tending. The calmness, peace and joy I felt from this was very healing and these feelings stayed with me for many days even after we left the woods . Christy is a really enthusiastic, knowledgeable, motivating, gentle and warm teacher and I am looking forward to my next learning experience with her"


"I came to the course to gain confidence in my existing hill skills and to update and improve them, and I came away from the course with exactly this, plus so much more helpful knowledge and guidance in addition to this which I’m certain will be both useful and important in the future. Christy provided a professional, informative and enjoyable learning experience on the Hill Skills course. I have come away from it with lots of valuable new knowledge and information as well as guidance on next steps to progress my skills on hills. Thank You so much Christy for a brilliant course!"

"I spent two days in Snowdonia with Christy Miles and Way of the Wild last weekend on a mountain skills course. I thoroughly enjoyed the skills taught and it helped me consolidate some learning. The weather was kind to us and we learnt in a friendly, relaxed manner. The sessions were interactive and engaging. Thank you"  Mountain Skills - October 2021

"Sitting deep in the woods munching on leaves, watching dappled sunlight filter through the summer foilage, while smoke from your fire wafts about, is a hugely earthing and calming experience".
