We were on a call yesterday morning on Corn Du and PyF, there were a couple of skiers and a boarder. Drifted up to knee deep but generally just a dusting.

Very well done. Nicely scripted (even better if it was off the top of your head!) and comes over great with the video.

I was down in Wales visiting my Mum when this came on the TV - "I think I know that guy!" (although only from here)

Brilliant, Mike. Diolch yn fawr.

RACING TO THE SEA

One of my most enjoyable ski days, and I didn't even ski!
A fantastic 2-day event organised and run by Snowsport Cymru Wales (@SnowsportCymruWales) at Ski Pembrey, Carmarthenshire, Wales to mark the start of the dry slope alpine racing season
Top class performances on and off the slopes, with stunning sea views over to Worm's Head in the Gower Peninsula the icing on the cake
My first experience of dry slope racing. Loved it. Everyone who organised & participated should feel very proud & happy
Ski Pembrey, Carmarthenshire, Wales

Here's Georgia Furlong (@georgia.l.f) of Cardiff Ski Club who finished 4th in the individual Ladies U-18 Champery Slalom event









In the starting gate





Catching some rays between races





The culmination of the day was the Team Dual Slalom Event, a 4-person relay head to head single elimination to determine the winner
Fast, frenetic and FUN!!!

Brecon Beacons National Park

IT SNOWED, I WENT
A sky full of clouds, beautiful views
Drove to the mountains, nothing to lose

Not enough on the rocky faces
Barely a trace in the grassy places

No sinuous turns or a chance to ski
No play today, not even for me

It snowed, I went
Far worse ways for a day to be spent

Day 2 skiing in Snowdonia National Park for winter 2016-17

IT SNOWED, WE WENT, WE SKIED

Not as poetic as Julias Caesar's 'Veni Vidi Vici / I Came, I Saw, I Conquered' but a truly magnificent Spring day skiing in the Carneddau Range of Snowdonia National Park, Wales with Mark from snowdoniaadventures.com and our very own @AndAnotherThing.. (in the yellow pants and camo jacket)

BBC Cymru Wales' meteorlogist Derek 'The Weather' Brockway called for a return to winter with snowfall on the higher peaks, and he and Mother Nature delivered

Mild, clear weather; sunshine; snow under our skis; jagged mountains; and spectacular ocean views of the Menai Strait and beyond

We walked to the summit of Foel Fras (942m); contoured round the summit of Carnedd Gwenllian (926m); on to Foel Grach (976m); and finally skied down to the saddle and our final destination, Cwm Bychan

We were then looking down and across to Cwm Caseg and the lake, Ffynnon Caseg at the foot of Yr Elen

If we got the snow, there'd be no reason to go anywhere else.

Brilliant effort Mike Pow. Good to see that there are others who are prepared to do something a bit mental to get a few turns in!

Thus proving you don't need 100km of piste & perfect snow to enjoy yourself on skis wink

It's turned colder and wetter the past two days.

You never know, a last hurrah Smile

Another great day out with Mike and David, we have our eyes on lots of lines, from long distance cruisers to steep - All it takes is snow and the ability to drop everything and just go.
