On The Ground Reporting

  • Flooding Alert: Saturday 16 March

    Flooding alert: heavy and persistent rainfall has led to flooding of the Nant Gwryd and Afon Llugwy near Plas y Brenin.

    The water level is now over the footbridge to Bryn Engan, and over Jim’s Bridge as well, making the Bryn Engan site inaccessible.

    Tonight’s scheduled 8 pm public talk has also been cancelled.

    Instructor Karl Midlane – Llugwy – UCLan

    Llugwy has dropped off to a low-level today, very windy!

    Snow is receding but still being blown about by the wind, meaning there will be wind slab and avalanche potential in sheltered regions. Be avalanche aware.

  • Tuesday 12 March

    Instructor Karl Midlane – Llyn Padarn – UCLan Outdoors

    Force 2 blowing across the naturally sheltered Llyn Padarn. In these high winds, Llyn Padarn is often a good location for sheltered paddling. Llugwy was in the fields but dropping.

    Further snow today with strong winds means that wind slab will be forming in sheltered locations. Be avalanche aware.

    Instructor Spike Green – Llechog Snowdon – Mountain leader training

    Soft snow down to 550m. A warming day, so a bit of thaw, especially on south-facing slopes, an overnight freeze will considerably help the consolidation of the snow. Any fresh snow will fall onto a consolidating layer. Winter is back, full winter kit needed.

    Adam Harmer – Bethesda falls – Advanced White Water Kayak Leader Training

    Dropping levels on the Afon Ogwen, however rain is expected during the week which should help boost them. Cold!
