Contact Nicholas Smith
Saturday 24 August 2024


Based in the Saas Valley, Switzerland at Hotel Schönblick and the campsite opposite, this meet is aimed at aspirant members in their first or second alpine season, and full members keen to refresh their skills. The Saas valley is flanked by numerous 4,000m peaks with dozens of mixed climbs in the lower grades, and is blessed with excellent transport links.

The meet has 36 places, and starts with two days spent developing alpine techniques with four mountain guides, including crevasse rescue and moving together, led by AC member Owen Samuel. The cost of the guides is subsidised by the AC. All members are welcome to attend the meet, even if not taking parting in the formal instruction.
