GREETINGS FROM THE COMMITTEE OF UNIÓ EXCURSIONISTA DE SABADELL (SABADELL HIKING UNION)

Unió Excursionista de Sabadell (from now on, UES) is an association that has two aims: the promotion of hiking and every kind of mountain sports, as well as the promotion of Catalan culture.
As it is a non-profit association, UES arranges hikes and cultural trips, lectures, talks, training courses and has a mountaineering library for its members, who are the real soul of the organization. Although non-members are also admitted, we advise everybody to become a member, as it is people who maintain and make the association grow.
UES is organized in several sections and each one arrange different activities related with its name. There are sport and cultural sections, as well as a mountaineering school and a library. Besides, thanks to the great number of people who form UES, occasional hikes or activities are organized by different groups, and anybody can join them.
Our members can stay at Pere Carné hut, located in La Molina skiing resort, at lower rates, and they can also hire mountain equipment at our headquarters.
Every two months, our members get a news sheet at home, with the next activities. In addition, they also get a splendid magazine three times a year.
Besides, as members of a mountaneering association, they can acquire the FEEC card (the mountain activites insurance, as well as the means to get reductions in all mountain huts worldwide).
UES has more than 2600 members and it’s the third biggest mountain club in Catalonia. It was also the most outstanding sports club in Sabadell in 1970, 1998, 1999, 2001 and 2007. If you become a member, you’ll be part of a club from where several expeditions have come out, like the ones that attained 8000 metre peaks as Shisha Pagma, Cho-Oyu, Manaslu, Gasherbrum II and Dhaulagiri; a club that has obtained a -1000 m in speleology, with the Goufre Berger abyss, and a club with an olympic nordic skier who competed in Calgary, Nagano and Lillehamer Olympic Games.
Every year we carry out some traditional activities, that mean a lot to us, as Sardanes a la Mola (with more than 50 editions), Marxa Infantil de Regularitat (with 40 editions) and Ronda Vallesana (with 30), that help project our istitution abroad.
During 2008, as we are celebrating the centenary of hiking and mountaineering in Sabadell, UES has received several distinctions, such as the Honour Medal of Sabadell.
We’d like to encourage you to come and see our headquarters, where you will find everything related to mountain, nature, culture…, and also a bar where you can, calmly, arrange your next hike.
We can meet on weekdays (monday to friday), from six to ten o’clock at Carrer de la Salut, 14-16, in the center of Sabadell, where we will be expecting you.
