Our Level 2 Public and Uniformed Services students put their teamwork and endurance skills to the test as they scaled the summit of Snowdon, also known as Yr Wyddfa, the highest mountain in Wales!

Setting off in the early morning, the students took on the challenging climb, using the Llanberis path, Snowdon’s most popular hiking route to the mountain’s peak. After an exhilarating four-and-a-half-hour ascent, the group reached the summit, withstanding temperatures of -5 degrees, being sure to take some stunning snaps atop the mountain!

The students have been preparing for their expedition with a rigorous training regime, including three hours of cardiovascular exercise per week and regular strength training in our onsite gym, where they’ve been using the treadmills on a high incline to prepare them for steep climbing.

We caught up with Public and Uniformed Services tutor, Chris, who said “Climbing the Snowdon submit supports the students’ learning in many ways. It encourages them to work as a team to achieve a common goal, which is such an important skill to have in the Public and Uniformed Services industry. It also contributes to the students’ units, which focuses on their expeditions skills and land based adventurous activities.”

Travel and Tourism Tutor, Dan, volunteered to help with the trip, driving the minibus. Despite planning on staying on the ground, Dan decided to try and scale Snowdon with the group. Having never climbed a mountain before, Dan managed to reach the summit, a fantastic achievement!

Take a look at some of the amazing shots our students managed to capture during their expedition!
