You must be booked onto the Ogwen Valley hostel weekend to take part in this training.
Mountain navigation & leadership training with a qualified UK Mountain Leader.
This may interest you if you'd like to become an OutdoorLads walk leader, or if you're an existing leader wanting to increase your skills.
The Ogwen valley and Cwm Idwal, provide an amazing setting for advancing your navigation skill. During this fast-track mountain nav course we will cover; weather, wild walk planning, group leadership and night navigation.
We will try to work with you, developing outcomes that will help you lead more fluidly and more confidently - whether you are currently one of our leaders or not, this free course should help give you a firmer grasp on mountain leadership.
Please note that the training starts at 8pm on Friday night (we'll make sure you get some buffet, either before or after) and finishes at 1pm on Sunday (but fear not, we won't be missing any of the social time throughout the weekend, in and around the hostel).
