Winter ascent of Snowdon - 10 Jan

Winter ascent of Snowdon - 10 Jan


10-12 January 2025


We will spend the weekend in cosy accommodation in the heart of Snowdonia and explore the local mountains in their cosy (or cold) winter jackets...​


This trip will include a winter ascent of Snowdon - The highest peak in England & Wales!​


To fully appreciate and enjoy a winter ascent, it is best to be properly prepared for the winter environment - with an early start, good crampon technique and the right equipment all helping to give a truly memorable mountain day.


This trip is suitable for anyone with summer mountain hiking experience and a good level of fitness.  Winter hiking experience is not necessary - A Full day of winter skills tuition will be provided prior to attempting the hike to the summit of Wales!


As always, we’ll sort out the travel, transfers and accommodation so just meet in London and leave the rest to us.

  • Friday (from 6pm) - Meet at Euston Train station and board the train for a relaxing jounrey to North Wales.  You will be met at the disembarking train station by your guide and driven the short distance to your accommodation in the heart of Snowdonia National Park

    Saturday - A full introduction to what we will be doing before journeying in the local area to the snow line for an introduction to the winter environment, an introduction/revision of ice axe/cramponing skills and the style of mountaineering required for a winter ascent.

    Sunday - An early start, to make the most of the day, we will make our way to the summit of Snowdon.  The specific route we take will depend on experience, ability and weather conditions.

    You will then be dropped off at the train station for a return back to London (expect to be back in London for 9pm)
