autumn season has now come to a close and with the recent cold spell thoughts
now turn to winter weekends, which start in January.
Meanwhile we hope to catch up with the paperwork and revamp the office.
Next summers dates and prices are now available, see the individual course
pages or the calendar.

We are now back from our family holiday in the Alps and looking forward to the
The fine weather is fortunately hanging around as we are having the house roof
There are still a few places on our remaining courses and we are now taking
bookings for the winter season so contact us for availability.
We are now paying the price for last week's heatwave with heavy showers. I
must admit though I wasn't too sad to see it go as it was exhausting walking
in the mountains in the heat - although nice to cool off with a dip in a
mountain lake or stream.
We have had a number of enquiries about next year's winter courses

An excellent start to our spring season with 2 months of dry and sunny
weather. Its been a busy period especially over Easter. The Bank holidays have
also filled (we have 1 place remaining on the Welsh 3000s 2nd May).
Mandy has been out of action with a foot injury (having had a needle removed
from her foot), but is back on the hill and trying to regain her fitness. The
kids are back at school after the Easter break so a chance to catch up on the

temperatures the next ice down to sea level. We've had enough snow for all but
one of our courses so far even though it has been very thin, most of the snow
seems to be falling in the east this year.
I've made a few new additions to the site- over the last month I have been
adding regular winter pictures
linked to the snow report. I've also added a library
so we can recommend books from our shelves.
