Yr Hafod Scout Centre is our base, deep in the Ogwen valley with easy access to both the Glyder and Carneddau mountain ranges, so even if conditions aren't wintery, there's a huge variety of walks and scrambles right on our doorstep.

Experienced, authorised adults will be in charge of each walking group (4 - 8 people) and the informal training will include [winter] walking skills, route planning, route choice, navigation, leadership and teamwork. If there are winter conditions, specialist equipment such as ice axes and crampons will be provided as necessary (you may bring your own but it will be checked).

The weekend typically provides a full day in the hills on Saturday and a half-day on Sunday before returning home at around 14.00.

Cooked meals are provided for both breakfasts and Saturday evening. Packed lunch for both days will need to be provided by the participants, as well as food (or money) for the two journeys. The minibuses will stop twice during each journey at motorway service areas.

The weekend is our most popular, so an early application (and payment) is essential to guarantee a place.

This is a genuine mountaineering trip, aimed at the more adventurous (hence the age limit). Previous winter experience is preferred and may be given priority - as will paid applications. You must have suitable fitness, clothing and most importantly, footwear*  SUGGESTED KIT LIST

A more comprehensive list will be provided with your confirmation email and IMC will provide any technical and group equipment. Please see the IMC Gear Guide for a more kit information or contact the organiser if you are still unsure.
