January 7 – 9: Snowdonia, North Wales. 

Get fit after Christmas and brush up your Winter Skills at the Meet at Glan Dena Hut.  Glan Dena is on the A5 west of Capel Curig, nestled between the Caenedds, and Trifan and the Glyders. Great scrambling possibilities on the east Ridge of Pen y Role Wen and the north ridge of Trifan. The Snowdon Horseshoe is not far away; all these hills at this time of year are likely to offer great winter conditions; members need to come prepared with ice axe and crampons and be knowledgeable in their use.

April 3 – 10: Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Staying at Muir Cottage, Inverey, near Braemar.

Join other members at Muir Cottage, Inverey, tucked away in the wood, 8K west of Braemar. This area is ideal for Munroists, Mountain bikers, or those wanting to practise their winter skills. Just below the Cairngorm plateau, the area holds its snow usually well into April. The remote Cairngorm giants, Beinn a Bhὐird, Ben Avon, Derry Cairngorm and Ben Macdui are close by with excellent cycle tracks. Lochnagar is another possibility. The hut is well equipped with excellent bike storage. The club would like to offer this meet to members who would be keen to share their knowledge with others or to less experienced members who would like to practise and improve their winter skills and navigation.

What more can be said – high likelihood of awful weather and swarms of midges, but when it’s good it’s amazing, the nearest we have to alpine climbing in the UK.
