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.
The team is made up of around 40-50 volunteer members. Each has a good level of mountaineering experience in both summer and winter conditions and local knowledge of the mountains around Snowdonia.
Mountain rescue incidents on Snowdon range from twisted ankles and overdue persons on easy paths to the most serious accidents or fatalities on cliffs and steep ground. The response provided might involve assistance by just a handful of members or may involve the majority of the team. On more complicated incidents the team may request support from the neighbouring rescue teams and also the Coastguard Rescue Service helicopter.
