There is an association between the listening skills of individuals occupying with mountaineering and their high solidarity and cooperation characteristics. This study is aimed to determine variables to be effective on listening skills levels. The study was conducted over totally 157 individuals (47 females) performing mountaineering activities in different parts of Turkey. Listening Skills Scale which was developed by Cihangir and Çankaya (2012)was used to gather data and frequency distribution, t test and ANOVA variance analysis were employed for statistical evaluation. Differences between the views of the groups were commented by taking the significance level of P:0.05 into consideration.It was found from the results of the study that there is no statistically significant difference between mean scores of the groups for gender, age, family structure and the reason for the preference of mountaineering sports while differences are statistically significant for education level and length of the time spent for sports. High school graduate individuals occupying with sports for 5 to 7 years exhibited lower listening skills than primary school and university graduate people occupying for more and less than 5 to 7 years. High accident risk makes listening important in mountaineering sports. It was suggested that individuals occupying with mountaineering should be told the importance of listening and need for improving listening skills.
