On weekend trips, we usually visit the more distant and remote mountain

Accommodation, and food and equipment recommended for Weekend Trips ...
Most weekend trips use shared budget accommodation, such as youth and independent hostels, but we often have hotel trips, usually at Easter and September weekends. We try to organise one backpacking trip each year to make access to the most remote mountains easier … but on these trips EVERYTHING you need has to be carried with you!
In hostel accommodation, you’ll need food for breakfasts and dinners as well as your usual hill food each day. We usually organise a communal dinner on the Saturday night with each member making a small contribution to the meal. The social aspect of these trips is very important … so don’t forget your hip flask and party piece!
In addition to your normal hill gear as for day trips, you’ll probably need at east one change of clothes and probably a sleeping bag and sleeping mat, depending on the type of accommodation. Often, especially with winter trips, a larger rucsac may be needed to take the extra kit.
