As challenging winter conditions grip many mountain areas across Britain, the BMC is urging people heading for Wales’ highest mountain to be prepared.
Going into the mountains where there is snow and ice requires specific equipment, skills, knowledge and awareness in addition to those used in summer hill walking, and the consequences of making errors can be much more serious.
This is true anywhere, but the booming popularity of Snowdon means the 1,085m (3,560ft) high mountain sees more than its fair share of visitors who aren’t equipped to deal with the harsh, often hazardous conditions.
