Mountain Training Weekend
About the Event
For those adventurers who want to gain confidence to explore and navigate in the hills independently and safely, this tutored course will give you the knowledge and skills to plan, prepare and be in the wilderness with confidence and safety. We will cover all aspects of planning routes, equipment choice, packing, navigating, travelling efficiently and with regard to the environment. All you need to know!
We will begin the course at the youth hostel, but will spend the short night out in the fells on one of the long summer days.
Bring appropriate mountain clothing, fell boots, a tent and a stove, and food for a day and a night in the fells.
There is an optional pick up and drop off from Oxenholme mainline train station.
Cost of tutoring: members £60, non-members £90.
