Hi everyone!
We are going to Ogwen Valley on 25th February. Below you can find useful info about the trip.
Tickets will be available on Monday at 12:00 and can be found at:
Student Union – Events – Activity – Hiking club. Make sure you are signed into the Student Union Website when purchasing tickets as a member. The member tickets for this trip are £16.50 and non-members are £23.50. The leader tickets are ONLY for those leading hikes, if you are not an established leader with the club but are interested in becoming one, please contact one of us on the committee before purchasing a leader ticket. Please note that the tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable as per SU rules.
You don't need to be a member to come, but it makes trips cheaper.
To become a member, you must log in to the Students' Union website. Non-students can register as a guest. Once logged in, find our page to join the Hiking Club.
The coach leaves from Owen's Park (by Domino's) at 8:00am, the Students' Union at 8:10am, and Weston Hall at 8:20am, don't be late! We get back around 8:00pm.
Boots - You MUST wear Hiking boots that have sufficient ankle support - we don't allow approach shoes! If you have any doubts send us a message. Also, as a rule of thumb, most shoes made by fashion brands such as Dr. Martens will not be permitted.
Trousers - Walking trousers do NOT include jeans and, if you wear jeans, we will not let you on the coach. Leggings, and light, fast drying trousers are all encouraged.
Waterproofs - A waterproof jacket is a must. We go on hikes even if it's raining. If you have waterproof trousers, we strongly recommend bringing those along as well - water resistant and water repellent do NOT mean waterproof. Your puffer or down jacket is NOT waterproof. Bring a hard shell!
Packed Lunch and Water - You MUST pack sufficient water and food to sustain you for a full day in the hills (2 litres are recommended). ALWAYS bring more than you think you will need. This is essential!
Hat and Gloves - We strongly recommend that you always bring hat and gloves. The weather can shift quickly, and you may feel unexpectedly cold.
Headtorch - you MUST bring a headtorch. We may end up finishing a hike in the dark. Therefore, bringing a headtorch is a necessity.
Spare Layers - Always bring some spare layers. It is nice to put on an extra layer when we stop for lunch or put on dry clothes after a long day out. Make sure you keep these in a dry bag or in a plastic bag. If you get wet, you will get cold, so these are essential.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!
See you on the hills,
