Welcome To The National Mountain Sports Centre

Deep in the mountains of North Wales, Plas y Brenin is a unique place, run by outdoor experts for outdoor enthusiasts. A place where passion for the outdoors runs deep and that passion is shared by every single member of staff as well as every guest.
For over 60 years we've been at the forefront of outdoor leadership, training and exploration and during that time we've built up a unique reputation for helping others get the most from their time in the outdoors. Our instructors are amongst the most experienced and knowledgeable in the field but our passion for adventure doesn't stop there.
From top to bottom, across our entire team, the depth of outdoor experience and enthusiasm is unrivalled and we like nothing more than to share that knowledge and passion with others.
So why not pay us a visit and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the National Mountain Sports Centre for yourself. Whatever your interest in the outdoors, from first timer to seasoned veteran, you'll always be welcome - and you will always be amongst friends.
