Each year we ask clients who book directly with us to climb Snowdon if they’d like to make a small donation to help support the work of our local mountain rescue team. Thanks to their amazing generosity we’ve raised £150 during the 2022 season which we’ve passed on on your behalf.
The Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team is a voluntary organisation who respond to those in need on Snowdon and the surrounding mountains. The team is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and relies entirely on donations from members of the public to carry out this essential life-saving rescue service.
Great news! MountainXperience has been shortlisted in this year’s Go North Wales Tourism Awards! In fact we’ve been shortlisted twice and we couldn’t be more excited.
This is the sixth year the awards have taken place created to showcase and celebrate the achievements, hard work and dedication of those involved in the tourism industry locally.
If you’ve ever dreamt of sleeping under the stars at the foot of Snowdon, then dream no more! MountainXperience is pleased to announce it’s latest new Snowdon adventure – Snowdon Wild Camping!
Wild camping is just that – camping in the wild. Your Snowdon wild camp adventure will see you climbing to the summit of Wales’ highest mountain before setting up camp in the shadows of the mountain, cooking tea and then spending the night in the true remoteness of Snowdonia.
We’re more than a little bit excited and massively proud to have been awarded Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award for 2022.
This puts us in the top 10% of businesses worldwide based on the reviews of our amazing clients over the last twelve months … which was also our first twelve months in business. So a huge thank you to all of you out there who have taken the time to share your fabulous feedback!
Being able to look after you and your family in the hills and mountains of the UK doesn’t have to be just your responsibility. Why not get the whole family involved and share the load … and the fun? Learning to read a map and use a compass are essential outdoor skills that adults and children of any age can learn.
The National Navigation Award Scheme is a personal performance qualification suitable for all ages to learn navigation skills and gain confidence to get out and enjoy the British countryside. Our courses take place over a weekend and are designed to keep the interest of both adults and children with fun and active sessions out and about in the hills. The ‘classroom’ sessions are deliberately kept short to allow the most amount of time actually ‘doing’.
If you’ve been shocked by photos like this taken over the weekend you might well be thinking that the popular Snowdon scrambling route isn’t for you. This image was taken on Saturday 7th May 2022 by Ari Roberts and shows a queue of patient hikers standing atop the Crib Goch ridge heading up to the summit of Snowdon. For those not aware of this popular route, after you’ve scrambled your way up on to the ridge you then have to traverse the knife-edge arête with huge drops either side of you and little opportunity to ‘overtake’ slower walkers.
The media have jumped on the story too. North Wales newspaper, The Daily Post reported Picture shows huge queues forming along Snowdonia’s notorious Crib Goch ridge and Wales Online ran the same image proclaiming The huge queue on a notorious ridge in Snowdonia as visitors flock to see 1,000ft drop.
There have been lots of stories this weekend about toilet problems on Snowdon. This isn’t a new problem however the issues being reported over the bank holiday Easter weekend are hugely exaggerated. We work closely with the Snowdonia National Park volunteer wardens and are out regularly throughout the season chatting to hikers and picking up litter. Thankfully it’s very rare that we come across the problems being talked about currently.
However we do understand that if you’re planning on climbing Snowdon you’re likely to need to ‘go’ at some point during your adventure. So we thought we’d share some tips about how to go to the toilet when hiking up Snowdon.
If you’re looking for the ultimate gift idea for Christmas, a birthday or just to say ‘thank you’ then why not give the gift of adventure with a Snowdon gift voucher.
