Snowdonia Mountain Guides – Closed until June 2024
The owner of this website has decided to take a sabbatical for a few months, as he has an exciting new role working as a field guide for the British Antarctic Survey. As such for next winter Mark is going to be based in Antarctica, with his expected return being May/June 2024.
We have lived and breathed rock climbing and mountaineering in Snowdonia for the last twenty-five years. It is the last thing we think about at night and the first thing that crosses our minds when we wake up. We have lived what can only be described as a dream lifestyle where the mountains and adventure are right on our doorstep. In doing so have come to know mountains and cliffs of North Wales intimately. What we offer isn’t just a course in how to climb, navigate or ascend a mountain, instead we offer something more. An adventure into the unknown.
An experience that we hope will help define you and your future enjoyment of the mountains of Wales and beyond. We handpick routes to take you to your mental and physical limits under the watchful eye of our coaches and guides. In the process, we will give you one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life. We don’t sell holidays, we sell mountain adventures.
So for the past 2-3 months I have been focused on training for a new and really exciting role for me. In May I was offered a job with the British Antarctic Survey as a Field Guide. I was very excited and accepted almost immediately, and ever since I have been working towards my deployment with oodles of training both professionally and personally. Everything from MET training to Sea Survival Training and a bit of fire fighting inbetween.
As a result I will not be running any courses or taking bookings until June 2024, as my tentative return date is May 2024. Sorry for any inconvenience. You can keep up with what I am up top down south via my social media channels.« Slate Historical Section
