As we enter the new 20/21 season RGU Snow have big plans for our much-anticipated return. It’s been rather challenging for everyone recently and we feel it’s our duty to put a big smile on everyone’s faces once again. We simply cannot wait to do what we do best as a club and deliver the good old times and look damn fine doing so once again. This year, we aim to take the club to new heights as we are looking to grow our brand and bring people together like never before. By capitalising on our Club’s already highly respected notoriety within the city of Aberdeen and of course the UK University Snowsports scene we will keep those standards high and raise the bar even further this year. Our various events hosted throughout the calendar and of course our notorious trip in January is something we are all looking forward to making the best year yet! RGU Snow offers something for absolutely everyone! Whether you’re new to the snow or a seasoned vet we can accommodate all abilities and interests when it comes to Snowsports. With lessons running weekly at the Garthdee slope and the opportunity to compete in various events throughout the year, RGU Snow takes great pride when saying we are a club who welcomes all walks of life with open arms! Socials this year may be a challenge to maintain what we would consider as normality, but this is a challenge we all face together! We have more than a few tricks up our sleeve and the box shall be well and truly thought outside to bring you a memorable experience that will be cherished for years to come! We aren’t simply offering a trip to the alps; we are far more than that. We provide an experience like no other club at university by giving our members and anyone who attends our events the opportunity to be part of something special!

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
