Spend an exhilarating weekend of guided mountaineering on some of Snowdonia's classics.
In winter, Welsh scrambles and gullies become more demanding and exciting. In a group of two, you'll accompany your instructor as you make your way up and over some of the most spectacular ridges or scrambles in Snowdonia.
Using a rope, ice axe and crampons wherever necessary, you'll overcome the complex challenges that winter conditions add to the adventure.
Kit: Don’t worry about having all the kit, as whilst you’ll need to bring your own personal essentials (like your toothbrush), you can arrange to hire more technical, specialist kit like an ice axe, crampons, winter mountaineering boots and a helmet, from the Plas y Brenin equipment store.
Kit hire is included in the price shown, subject to availability, and is sourced from leading manufacturers and checked to the latest safety requirements. You’ll find a comprehensive equipment list below.
Included in the residential price: Two nights’ accommodation on a bed, breakfast and evening meal* basis, plus packed lunches on course days. Expert instruction, kit hire, in-course transport, use of the on-site facilities and the all-important Wi-Fi password.
Provision of accommodation begins on the night prior to the start of the course and is not included on the final evening.
*Dinner is not provided on the evening prior to the start of the course, nor on the final day of the course. Subject to availability and at an additional cost, extra meals and accommodation can be provide.
