We are coming to the end of our closed period and the batteries areMandy on Glyder Fawr recharged ready for the coming winter season. We've been out enjoying the current cold snap today with an ascent of hidden gully on Glyder Fawr.

Ian has been busy fitting new wardrobes and pine panelling in the house double bedroom and we have both been working on next years brochure and updating the web site. We are adding "Flash" more information panels on the courses pages so hopefully these will cover all those extra questions. 

The Winter Long Weekends start on 9th of Jan, we still have a few spaces but these are filling fast, so reserve your place now to avoid disappointment.


9th September 2002 

The summer as usual has gone in a flash, we have been very busy which has been good news after the trials of last years foot and mouth.
We even managed a family holiday in the Alps!

Courses for the remainder of the year are almost full. We still have places on the following:-
Mountain walking 11-14 Oct                   4 places
Navigation 18-21 Oct                              3 places
We have also added another Welsh 3000's weekend due to popular demand 1-4th Nov.

Work on our new water supply is "well" under way. 
For the last 15 years we've taken our water from a nearby stream. Now the Tal y Waen borehole project hopefully means a more constant supply, so no freezing in the winter, or running out after 6 baths.




The weather has been kind to us so far this year and most of the courses since March have taken place in dry conditions. 
The remainder of the year is looking pretty full with only a few places remaining.

Ben Nevis and Carn Dearg from Anaoch MorOur winter season is over and the Easter group are arriving in some beautiful spring sunshine.
 In between we have had a couple of weeks to ourselves. I have been in Scotland for the snow and ice and was lucky to catch some stunning weather( see photo of Ben Nevis). Mandy then cycled around South Wales to research her book. 
We even managed to meet up to compete in the Polaris Mountain bike challenge. Wading through the Black Mountain mud certainly made a change from the snow!

Winter is back at last in the mountains of Wales, after one of the mildest Februarys on record but how long will it last?
Ned, Mike, Angela, Wayne & Brian have been out today playing in the white stuff.
Will we be practicing our ice axe techniques indoors in a few years time ? See Snowdome report for details

30th January 2002

We attended a noisy consultation meeting last week in Llanberis, one of a number of local meetings held to discuss the proposed Snowdonia Green Key strategy.
A basic summary of the proposals can be found here.
Most of the objections centred around the proposals to restrict parking within the area.
This has the most obvious implications for our business other outdoor centres and all walkers and climbers visiting the national park.
