Treble Three, or more simply 333, was set up in 1997. The purpose of the group is to help raise both the profile and funds for the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation. The enigmatic numbers were chosen as they are the last three digits of our telephone number and quite frankly they are reminiscent of 999.
By becoming a member of Treble Three you will be supporting the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation in providing a rescue service, even if you don’t have the time, skills, experience or fitness required to be active on the mountains.
As a member, you will receive a membership card entitling you to a discount in some equipment shops and a car sticker. We aim to have a social event per month in the form of camping weekends, accompanied walks and bike rides, and the door at Oggie Base is always open for that just-off-the-hill brew. Please regularly check our Events Page for up-to-date information. We try to get your membership pack to you as quickly as possible, but it may take 4-6 weeks during busy periods.
It costs on average £115,000 to keep the team fully operational. Great expense goes on equipment and training as well as running a rescue base and two Land Rover ambulances.
