Mike Raine - Senior Instructor




Mike Raine is Senior Instructor with responsibility for Environment, he also oversees the Home Nations Mountain Training schemes and the Instructor Scheme.

Mike operates across all our hill-based courses here in north Wales. He can be tempted away by the odd interesting First Aid course but usually prefers to stay in Snowdonia.

Mike has been a keen rock climber and dabbling mountaineer for rather a long time now, so much so that his current interests are more sea kayak and mountain bike-based. You will find his name in odd places have climbed a few new routes and, at various times, has been considered a ‘slatehead’ and a south-west activist. He still believes a good day out in the Scottish winter is possibly the best climbing experience to have (though, for him, that’s part of an earlier chapter).
