Snowdon for Mountain Leaders
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Mike Raine and Keith Hulse for this Nature of Snowdonia Special Snowdon Workshop. Open only to qualified Mountain Leaders. Mike will take you through the nature of the mountain, the geology, the glaciation, plant and birdlife. We’ll talk about the history of farming, mining and tourism on the mountain. Keith will regale you of lessons learnt working as a full time guide and volunteer ranger on Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa.
You’ll receive a PDF of all the information shared on the day to help you with future work on the mountain. We’ll meet at Pencaunant Isaf (Snowdon Cafe) A good brew and bacon butty stop with great hospitality. We’ll wander up the Llanberis Path. Grab a brew at the Halfway House. We’ll gaze over at the complex geological jigsaw of Clogwyn du’r Arddu.
This day will set you up with a lifetime of ideas for guiding on Yr Wyddfa, it’ll kick start your fund of stories, improve your knowledge and open your eyes to aspects of the mountain you never knew existed.
You’ll need to bring a packed lunch (we won’t linger at the summit café) and be prepared for a full day on the mountain. Our journey will take us up the Llanberis Path, down the Miners Path and we’ll get the bus back to Llanberis from Pen y Pass. Please come prepared to collect some litter (it's inevitable!)
Brews included. We'll run this workshop again in the autumn. If you are a member of MTA or AMI you can have a CPD point for attending this workshop
